    My Macbook (10.6) is messed up right now. It won't boot. I suspect it's RAM-related, but I don't have the time/tools available to fix it at the moment.

    It can, however, boot into Single User Mode. I was just curious if there's a way to access wifi while in Single User Mode, so I can at least use elinks.

    I don't think so.
    There are a few Macs that have Wifi in the Startup Manager. But I think only the firmware that is related to non-optical drive Macs (MacBook Air, newer Mac mini's) is capable of that.
    You can try.

    Ok, seems like it won't work. Thanks for the info.

    Also, does anyone know how to change the keyboard layout to Dvorak in Single User Mode (it seems I ahve a hard drive issue that I probably won't be able to solve for a few weeks)
