    well, my elementary schools got al new computers, so they got rid of the old iMacs (G3, 500mhz, 320RAM, panther)(i have connections with people in high power, so i got two of them for free, and will get more soon :) )and i was wonder how i get access to the .mac account...if its even possible.....

    this is my first ever mac, i mainly took it to run the iphone SDK (was very sad to know that i cannot run it at all........) so i need a full tutorial.......

    Thanks!

    Firstly its not called .mac anymore, Apple completely revamped it and changed the name to Mobile Me.

    Secondly Mobile Me only works with computers running Tiger or later (OS 10.4) Panther is 10.3. So you will need to get a copy for Mobile Me to work.

    Here is the link to buy Mobile Me http://store.apple.com/us/product/MB824Z/A?mco=MTIxODk3Mw

    Hope I helped :)

    That's what I thought. Giving help for things that relate to illegal downloading isn't kosher on this board. Take a look at the rules, you'll see what I mean.
