guys. I need someone please to get ahold of me on skype or msn etc. I just finally today got my first mac ever. I think I'm really gonna like it, but I wanna explore a bit more than just what tiger's gotta offer. I wanna put skype on here. plus a few other progs I have. This is so weird. I went in the finder to my <sunbannA.gif>y side bar. I don't yet know how to download with safari. i'll learn but I'm taking things one baby step at a time. So for now, I burned the dmg with my windows box. I copied the file from my cd media whicfh has a volume name of software. all in lower case to the mac by means of selecting the volume called software in my side bar. I vo'd to it, then interacted. I then vo down arrowed till I got to software. it was I think like, the first item in the side bar. once it said selected, I then stopped interacting. I went over to the browser, and found the .dmg file. I hit command o to open the dmg. I then vo right arrowed till I got to the browser again and interacted. now I saw two items. Skype, main application basicly, and a folder called applications. I selected the skype folder. I should add that cursor tracking was on. Then, I did cmd +c to copy. It said copied skype. I then did cmd+w to close that finder window and get back where I was. In the side bar, I found the applications folder. it was right under the folder with my name. by under I mean, virticually if I were on my home folder then vo down arrowed I saw applications. so, I selected that and then stopped interacting with the side bar. I then interacted with the browser. once done, I did cmd+v to paste. I kind a just sits there and does nothing. Paste isn't dimmed in my edit menu. but, then, after I do this, I look, and I have the software volume but it also shows in the side bar the image volume called just skype. However, if I go under applications where I get all 25 items that came on my mac, Skype isn't there. I don't know what on earth I am doi8ng wrong but I getting very frustrated. this is very fun and very challenging, but, it's beginning to make my anxiety hit the roof and scare me. I don't wanna fear the mac. Please will someone help me. I'm sorry if I sound like a begger, but I honestly don't know what I'm doing wrong. I'll be up for a while so just call me on skype if you can at:chris28210 or e-mail/msn me at: chris@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Thank you. Chris.
