      I agree with the above comment.

      Even so if you which to up date to OSX 10.2.6 you should just go to the 'blue Apple' icon at the top left of window, click on this and then click on 'software up date'. This will check what software you system requires to update you.

      Alternativly you could upgrade to OSX 10.3 Panther or 10.4 Tiger

      Allbeit that you have a BB conection you should be able to download the necessary upgrade files

      That is a stupid system 'requirement'...all the software to connect the Sky Broadband is in the router's firmware, you just need a working ethernet/wifi connection to it. Sky even provide Virex which works on 10.2.x on their website - http://skynews-clips.videoloungetv.c...e/Virex7.7.dmg
