So, UK Panther buyers...

... anyone received their copy of Panther yet? It's 4:37pm right now, and I'm waiting for the postie to deliver my copy - it's entirely possible that the doorbell will ring at 8pm, but somehow I doubt it



I'm guessing that the earliest time it will arrive is on Saturday - is that likely, seeing as it shipped on the 21st (tuesday)?

    It's brilliant and I've found it is speedier than Jaguar. My DSL modem isn't working on it though \




    What modem are you using?

    Damn, that sucks. Do you think there is any chance of Zyxel making a Panther-compatible driver, or are you net-less until someone finds a workaround?

    BTW, I found this link on their site. Maybe uninstalling and then reinstalling the driver might help... probably not, but it's worth a try!

    Does anyone know if TNT delivers on a Saturday?



    I want my Panther!

    Well that's the last time I try to be smart....



    I thought if I try upgrading the Power Mac (not a clean install or archive & install) then maybe the modem settings will be ok. The installation went like a breeze until it restarted. At the "Welcome to Macintosh" screen I had 4 kernel panics (white text, black box, grey power symbol behind the text).



    I've given up for the evening now \



    Not to worry though. One it's all sorted then I'll be pleased. Panther is really good.
