i just went thorugh the same thing. i think i just restarted the machine(powerbook) and it showed up. there is a lot about this in the knowledge base at Apple's site.

Backtothemac and I had the same problem.

In your Software Update control panel, install the security update, then the program "Installer Update", then go right on from there. I recommend using the combo update straight to 10.1.5 once you have updated.

I just wiped a drive clean and installed 10 on it brand new, what a difference performance wise it made to install on a faster harddrive!

oh- and it'll be nice having 10.2 instead of having to do a million installs of the old software if I ever had to do it again.

that bit the big one, I can't think of a time when Apple had released so many updates between x.x upgrades. ie, from 7.1 to 7.6 only took one upgrade...

The easiest solution is to download the July 17(I think) security update. Install it. after that you are fine. Go to Apple support, select Mac OS X. scroll down. It is on that page under downloads. :cool:
