    I volunteered my iBook for a Powerpoint presentation in class tomorrow. I hope it works!

    What's the process in hooking up my iBook to the projector? I have a video adapter cable that came with the iBook, so I'm definitely taking that. When I plug that in will the video signal automatically go to the projector? I recall with windows you had to select F6 or something like that.

    Thanks in advance for your responses...

    i used my PB for a presentation in class. Be sure to get there a little early, so you can set it up and make sure it works (and change your wallpaper FROM a picture of men in kilts... my wallpaper got quite a response! hehe).

    Everything worked fine. The video out adapter cable that came with my iBook hooked right up to the LCD, and I had a blank template of the Powerpoint presentation up and running so there was no waiting time for setup. Thanks for your responses!

    Also, I had the coolest Powerpoint template - the chalkboard - only available on Mac version of MS Office. Nice comments in the class.
