Updating panther to leopard
Chances are, you were using Mac OS X even before you bought this book, since few Macs sold in the past few years can boot into anything else.And even if you own an older Mac, the fact that you're reading this volume means you've probably already installed Mac OS X on it!Or, even more important, you may need to -install Mac OS X (to fix problems).
It is your job to be sure you have the most up-to-date versions of your software.
It is equally important to keep Office/Word fully updated since each update issued contains improvements to Office applications (sometimes even new features) and/or fixes to newly discovered security vulnerabilities.
The specific information below on Office updaters is current as of this writing (see "Page Updated" date at the bottom of this page).
For that reason, I provided an overview of Mac OS X (in Chapter 2) this description of how to install the operating system, believing that most of you are already up and running in Mac OS X.
Even if that's the case, though, you may someday be called upon to install Mac OS X on an older Mac that's still running Mac OS 9.
