Q&A

Q1: What are some other browsers besides Internet Explorer?
A1: There are several other browsers besides Internet Explorer, including Netscape, OmniWeb, and Opera. If you want to try one, go to the Mac OS X page of www.versiontracker.com and search for Web browsers to download and install. Also, if you install a new browser that you want to use as your system’s default Web browser instead of Internet Explorer, you can change this setting in the Web tab of the Internet panel of System Preferences.
Q2: You said that files in the public folder of my iDisk are accessible to other users. How can someone else connect to my iDisk?
A2: From another computer running Mac OS X, choose Connect to Server from the Finder’s Go menu and enter the address of the iDisk you want to access as http://idisk.mac.com/[membername]/Public/, filling in [membername] with the appropriate information. If the folder is password protected, you must enter public for the username and the proper password in the password field.

From a computer running Mac OS 9, open the Chooser from the Apple menu. Select AppleShare and click Server IP Address button. Type idisk.mac.com in the Server Address text box and click Connect. Type the member name of the person whose folder you want to access and enter either the proper password for the folder or, if there is no password, the word public . Select the iDisk and click OK.

PC users operating Windows 98, 2000, or XP can also access iDisk. However, each of those systems does so in a slightly different way. Visit www.mac.com for detailed instructions.

For those who need to connect to multiple iDisks, iDisk Utility can help. You can download this application from www.mac.com.
