Ah, what link are you talking about for the 1.3.8?  I couldn't find a

person cancelled our appointment today I tried to install OS 10.5 and
managed to mess up everything, even my ability to get on the Internet,

rented a computer as today is the last free day I have to finish (and
start) my project that was due last week.  Ah well, hopefully I'll
have a very productive time for the rest of the day.  thanks for
