Thank you so much, macbeemer! After several dropped connections, I FINALLY managed to order a 500 GB Time Capsule from apple.com. It should be here within the week. I owe you (and your wife) a beer and a place to stay if you ever come to Cape Cod. It's pretty sad when dialup on the iPhone is faster than broadband on the Mac Pro... My online final exam is next month and it would be a real pain to have to connect the 12" iBook directly to the modem just so that I didn't drop my connection in the middle of it! That 12" screen is OK for when I'm traveling, but I really like being able to see the big picture. Whew! What a relief. Thanks again for that wonderful suggestion. It's a done deal. I was totally stressing out over this.<br><br>
