Ok, I've been having some problems with Software Update. I run it, and it will show me a few things that I can update. So I click on update, and then it gets all screwy. It immediately disconnects me from Compuserve, then attempts to find the server for the updates. I've tried to do it about a thousand times now, and I can't figure it out. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

All glory to the hypnotoad.

Thanks. I'll have to hook my laptop up to my cable modem to do the updates. I wish we had an airport network set up here. =)

All glory to the hypnotoad.
