Just downloaded X11 and it was a .dmg file and safari when it had finished downloading mounted it automatically without even loading up disc copy!<br><br>"...

It does mount, but there's a script in the image file that mounts, copies the .pkg file to the desktop and unmounts and deletes itself. I'm not sure I like it. I like to back up downloaded disk images to a CD. I suppose I can just turn off disk mounting in Stuffit Expander.<br><br>
This is a feature of Safari. According to the webpage it automatically does this. It also expands gz and tar files and deletes the original compressed version and just leaves the "end result file" on your desktop. I kind of like it, but I wouldn't mind the ability to turn the feature off.<br><br><br>Visit Me At My .Mac Site

I have my dls go to my Downloads folder rather than my Desktop. I simply save the pkg there (or whatever file is the end result).<br><br>[color:purple]"If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention!"</font color=purple><br><br>
