    I am cross posting this here and in the HT PC area, hoping to find an answer for a desperate friend. Here is the question:

    "We have a house in the central California mountains, in an area with no TV cable service and no DSL, just a standard telephone line. We'd like to get satellite Internet service, but we have Macintosh computers, not PCs. Has anybody found a satellite sevice that works

    with Macs?"

    Thanks if you can help,

    Deborah

    I remember reading a couple articles on Macworld's website earlier this year by a writer who was using DirecPC with his Mac. It wasn't "officially" supported, but it worked. THe articles detailed what he had to do to get it all functioning, and the troubles he encountered
