    Hi.
    I have a question that i know some of you guys would have had experience in,
    but just is just plain greek to me.
    A friend of mine has bought an Apple IBook Laptop and wants to connect to
    the internet.
    I really want to help her out as she is desperate.
    If i look on Google i just seem to find details on how to connect with
    specific ISP's.
    I am looking for just the way to set up a general internet connection.
    We are both in the UK. When you pop in one of those ISP disks from AOL,
    Freeserve etc on Windows you follow the instructions.
    On these disks is there setup options of Mac OS.

    Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Darren
