BoardMod and Apple MAC
Playing with a new Apple. Bought it because we plan to be on the road in retirement and wanted a nice light laptop.

Before I start downloading too man things can anyone tell me if BoardMod is compatible with a MAC System.

Have downloaded FileZilla for my FTP and that fits perfectly.

Thanks

Not as is I'm afraid, no.

I've never tried this myself but if you get yourself a copy of Windows, you could use Boot Camp which is built into Mac OS X and run BoardMod from there:

Welcome to the manual club! Smiley

Also check out VirtualBox and the other programs listed here:

Should be a lot easier than partitioning your drive and rebooting every time you want to use BoardMod.

I've never used them to tell you what they're like, but is probably the way I would personally go.

Re: BoardMod and Apple MAC
Hubby got a Mac mini from his brother and is running XP on it - There's no Mac software equivalents for any of the software he needs. (Not a single one, seriously.)

Son has a Macbook with the metal case for fieldwork. Has Win7 on it.

Re: BoardMod and Apple MAC
yer it can be bad trying to find software equivalents for Mac's in saying that if it wasn't for win 95 and win 98 i'd probably still be using a Amiga OS  Grin
