We have a mac mini and dial up, not by choice, they offer it all around us, literally, but not to us for some reason. I DO NOT want cable. The program bootcamp has to be installed before I can install windows. To bring the machine up to it's maximum browser 10.4.8 the download is 300MB and if I don't sit there and babysit it, which is impossible it is like 20 hours or something, the computer for some reason will stop downloading due to a message that says something about AOL has turned off the idle setting. Then all we had up until then is not downloaded and we have to start again. I suspected it was the memory which I just upgraded to 1GB but that wasn't it. any ideas would be sooo helpful. Brenda PS: I turned the desktop setting to 3 hours before the screensaver starts but no difference.
