Must be something on my side :(

Yep. Worked a charm. Was a bit painful to set it up for my user to use
bash by default. But eventually I got it sorted. Also takes a bit of pain
to get access to the root user.

Ah, comes with the developers CD which you don't get if you order direct
from Apple (what is with that?). A friend of mine burnt me a copy, I can
possibly get a .dmg file online for you.

Open up IE. Click on the OS X link. Bottom right hand corner talks about
programs. I think there's a tab for this section too. Anyway, tons of
stuff on there, look at the Dock section.

Definitely sounds interesting. Carrying that thing around is a pain.

Alternative browsers, Mozilla and Opera both fail to be as good as they
are on linux. Omniweb is a nice one. 30 dollars or so, but is very highly
rated. www.omnigroup.com

You can also get a xxxx@mac.com email address from apple for free, plus a
chunk of disk space. They've made this really easy for the consumer user,
so might be worth getting it setup. They call it iDisk and iTools.
