Can you get Safari on a CD? - Mac Applications & Software

My parents, who live about 3000 miles away, have a beta version of Safari that has expired. They also only have a modem connection to the internet and know absolutely nothing about computers. (I'm worried that they may goof something up in the long download process). I've been trying to give them instructions about updating using "Software Update", but they just haven't been able to do it yet.

    Default Can you get Safari on a CD?

    My parents, who live about 3000 miles away, have a beta version of
    Safari that has expired. They also only have a modem connection to the
    internet and know absolutely nothing about computers. (I'm worried that
    they may goof something up in the long download process). I've been
    trying to give them instructions about updating using "Software Update",
    but they just haven't been able to do it yet. I tried sending them a
    copy of the application alone on a CD that I had burned, but when they
    did a click and drag onto their computer, it didn't work. Is there a
    type of installation disk with Safari that I could buy or download so
    they could install it from that instead of from the internet. Or does
    anybody have any other ideas for super super easy ways to install the
    program?

    Download Safari here:

    [url]http://www.apple.com/safari/download/[/url]

    The result is a .dmg. Burn that file to a CD and send them the CD. When
    they get it, have them phone you; walk them through the instructions for
    doing the installation (which you should practice in the meantime so you
    know what to tell them). m.
