If you are distributing your software on CD-ROM we can help you. We can
create a "hybrid CD-ROM with both the Mac and the PC data independant of
each other. If you pop the disc in a PC, you will never know the Mac data
is there. If you pop the disc in a Mac, you will generally only see the
Mac data unless you have intentionally configured your CD extensions to see
ISO 9660 hybrid discs. Regardless, it will be obvious what programs to run
because the Mac window will automatically open on the desktop and there
will be pretty icons begging to be clicked on.

The way we create MSIE or Netscape hybrid Mac/PC CDs for ISPs who do not
have access to Macs is to have the ISP Zip up the PC directory tree they
want on the CD. The ISP can ftp the file to us or FedEx it on tape or
cartridge. For the Mac data, we grab the latest version of MSIE or
Netscape from the appropriate web site for you. The only thing we cannot
do for you is configure the Mac software. You may want to check out the
Internet Monkey at for a Mac configuration utility.
Since the relative number of Mac users is so small, most ISPs prefer to
just walk the user through the process on the phone.

I would be happy to provide additional information or put you in touch with
John, our sales manager.
