Hmm - I didn't notice anything like that! I could have been tripped by non-PC terminology, maybe, or the fact that it started setting up what amounted to Airport, and I was concentrating on getting that working (not too hard once I found a network I could actually use without first having to set up the wireless part of my modem and figure out what MAC address the MacBook would have.

I'm postponing installing Leopard now until I'm at least a little familiar with the machine - and I would like to be able to separate all my "own" stuff from what came pre-installed so I could re-install without losing my own data and applications (hopefully...). That suggests a partition to me, but I'm not sure, and not sure if that's even possible with a single pre-installed HD in the machine.

Grace, for now - but I have Alan set up with an identical Eudora using a synced copy of all my email, so I can basically pick up the laptop and continue, and re-sync when I get back. So until Odysseus grows up, it would be nice if I could get my hands on a (free?) Eudora for Mac - but do I remember correctly that it won't work on Leopard?
