        I recall the same thing. A lot of people had trouble setting
it up as well, even with most ISP's still using static IP addresses.

        Opera's great. They just released the final version of Opera
5 for the Mac. I've got both it and Netscape running to see what the
footprint difference is, both displaying the same page as the first
page since the browser was opened, and Opera is at 14.4MB and
Netscape is at 20.6MB. That could mean quite a difference after the
browser has been opened a while and a lot of pages viewed.
