    I don't know which I have . I bought it when they first came out about 2 years ago .  Guess I'm going to have to read the book and find out !
    U need a real computer not a Mac to update .

    if it was a BETA version you will need a special boot loader from Ryan at MidNite dot com

    it's simply a click and drag and drop process...  not at all like the Classic process... which can be extremely frustrating...
