    It seems I have to go a roundabout way in order to connect to the Internet using a USB Dial-Up modem.

    I thought you could double click on the Safari icon on the Dock and get connected to the Internet. But every time I try to do this, the Diagnostics page keeps cropping up.

    The only method I have found to get connected is thru the Network folder under System Preferences, which to me is a backhanded alternative to what should be a more direct means by clicking directly on the Safari icon.

    Is there something wrong with my Internet set-up causing this run around?

    Also, I am unclear as to whether my 20" screen is setup properly? Is it true that in order have the sharpest screen readout/visual appearance and still cover the complete display area that everything seems actually smaller than when compared to a 17" inch display usage (which is the size of the LCD monitor I am using with a Power Mac).

    Finally, what is the best source to find out all about my iMac & its features? The documentation sent is very scant. Aside from the petite booklets (with same information repeated on the computer), is there any extremely pertinent guide I am overlooking that comes with the computer? Any other major sources?

    For dial up setup.

    For auto connect.

    I'm not entirely sure what you are saying about the monitor but you should definitely calibrate it.
