I'm on a Lombard laptop. Just upgraded the memory to 384MB. I have been trying to download a word processing program. I have tried several - ragtime, neo office to name a couple. I've tried in Firefox and nothing happens. I've tried in Explorer and the download manager pops up and says, "error".
So, what am I doing wrong?

Have you tried downloading from Safari?

If the browsers that you are using are able load web pages then they should be able to download files too.

Edit: I would recommend using Safari also.

I had a horrible time trying to download firefox. I can try downloading safari and go from there. But it should download from IE or firefox. My eMac doesn't have problems downloading off these two browsers.
