Ok..i know these types of posts happen all the time. my story: i have 2 macs and a peecee for my business. the latter is used for the business side of things so the macs run files etc.. (video transfer business). so i need to send a fax...and i've never set up windoze to do it. fine...i find the instructions, follow them....and it asks for winxp service pack 2 CD. I only have the original SP1 CD. so i sigh and go to microsoft's site, figuring hey, maybe i can dload something. i find more instructions...they say the same thing. I don't have the sp2 install exe on my peecee so essentially, down the proverbial creek i am. i say, ok...i print the file into a pdf. hop onto my mac and grab the file from my peecee over the network. type in 'fax' in the help. boom..instructions..ok... i connect my G4's internal modem to my line...follow instructions. done. sent..2x's to be safe. everything worked....took about 1 minute 10 seconds, including time to find my old modem cable and connect it. my lord microsoft sucks. why does everything have to be pulling out teeth!?!?!!
