    You could download the update from Apple.com couldn't you?

    Yes, like the original reply said, you just need the combo update.

    It's all sorted now, I remember in the past when I updated someones laptop for them I had to do it in a couple of increments. I was surprised to see that this was OK. Must be a recent policy change.

    While I'm here, when I installed I chose to set no internet connections, and I plugged the newly installed emac via ethernet into the router and I was ready to copy all my settings over but to my surprise after having a crap time installing, I opened safari and it conneced to an apple page that I thought must be on the computer but the emac had configured itself by just plugging it in. Great.

    What I'm wondering now is can I connect two emacs directly via ethernet or do I need to go through a router?. I went to connect to the local network and it saw the other host but when I tried to connect it came up with a dialog box saying "Alias not found" and when I went to fix it just searches for files. I checked the sharing pane for a 10.0.0.0 number but to try and connect that way but there wasn't any number there.

    Or is there such a thing as a direct comp to comp firewire network?

    Just use an ethernet or firewire cable, they should set themselves up with 169.254.x.x addresses.

    OK I found that, thanks, then I found I forgot to switch on file sharing on the other comp.

    Is a firewire connection faster for large volume of data I need to shift about 30 gig, would ethernet be as fast?

    depends on the ethernet, but I'm guessing given that they're emacs, firewire would be better.

    Excellent. I knew I'd get sorted when I saw you in the thread. :)

    EDIT: btw you haven't seen my firewire cable about by any chance?

    awww thanks, but my original reply was a rehash of what everyone else said :eek:

    LMAO no. But I have a box somewhere around here with a dozen of them, if you want to dig around. :D

    Must be the way you tell it.

    EDIT: for future historians who come across this thread... firewire on the late model emacs was about another 50% faster than ethernet.
