    Hello,

    Maby a stupid question, but I try anyway:

    I got a Mac Book Air, and bought the Airport Extreem, because I want to stream music to my HIFI system from ITunes.

    I have no external DVD/CD drive, so I have to use REMOTE DISK, from my windows based PC.

    My remote disk seems to work, but when I put in the installation CD that came with me Airport Express unit, I can only see two pdf files, Quicktime, but I cannot see the Airport Admin Utility.

    Is the REMOTE DISK facility completely transperant, so it should show everything on the CD, on the remote drive, or can there be files that REMOTE DISK will not give access to from my Airport Air?

    In other words, how can I install Airport Express on my Airport Air, via REMOTE DISK, form a XP windows based PC?

    Thank you very much for your help

    Don't you already have Airport Utility on your mac, inside the /Applications/Utilities folder?

    Sorry guys, I am very new to Apple and Mac's so I really thought that I needed to install the software from the CD that came with me Airport Express.

    So you are saying that I should be able to install my Apple Express directly from the Mac Air, without using the CD?
