    I know this is ancient stuff im dealing with, but it is all my aunt has and Im trying to get her connected to the internet. Shes got an iMac from i think 99, running OS 9.2. I installed her dial up provider software, and it told me the modem was not connecting and to make sure it was enabled in the system preferences, problem is i have no idea where system preferences is and i know nothing about Macs. I could really use some help.

    Under the Apple Menu go to Control Panels, find Modem there.
