    I've got a question.

    Is there anyway to install one program, say internet explorer, from my PB's install disks?

    I guess I need explorer for a specific Disney website. Firefox, Netscape, Safari etc won't work. emailed the wdw tech people and got told to use IE. I politely told them to get with the future and update for compatibility for us mac users.

    I'm currently using dial-up so downloading won't be great. Can I still download from that evolt website?

    Yes there is. You should be able to install individual programs from the original install disc. Not exactly sure how, but it's probably in the customize section of the install process.

    You might need Pacifist to find and extract it. Have you tried getting Safari's debug menu to help it pretend to be Explorer?

    I forgot about Pacifist that mad jew mentions. That's the program you want to use.

    Or you can just download the final Internet Explorer for Mac OS X here.

    EDIT: Damn, wasted my time.

    I hope you realise you'll never get that time back.

    Have you tried Opera? Also, as others have mentionned, you could probably use the website if you fake the user agent.
