    I used wget in Terminal.app to download the 10.2.6 update on a dialup
    connection. You can download wget from
    <http://www.cosmos.ne.jp/~kaz6120/downloads/index.pl?class=unix_porting>.
    After you have wget installed, open Terminal (located in the Utilities
    subfolder of your Applications folder) and type at the % prompt "wget
    [url]http://apple.speedera.net/download.info.apple.com/Apple_Support_Area/App[/url]
    le_Software_Updates/Mac_OS_X/downloads/061-0566.20030506.3w72q/2Z/MacOSX
    UpdateCombo10.2.6.dmg.bin" (without the quotes). Press the Return key
    and the download will begin. When you're ready to stop downloading,
    type command-period to stop. Then, when you want to pick up from where
    you left off, open up the Terminal program and type "wget -c
    [url]http://apple.speedera.net/download.info.apple.com/Apple_Support_Area/App[/url]
    le_Software_Updates/Mac_OS_X/downloads/061-0566.20030506.3w72q/2Z/MacOSX
    UpdateCombo10.2.6.dmg.bin". This will resume the download from where
    you left off. After you've finished, the downloaded file will be in
    your home directory, not on your Desktop. You can then use StuffIt
    Expander to open the file.

    HTH,

    OK, have downloaded, decompressed and installed wget using Installer.
    Was not able to rename and move to HOME dir .tcshrc , probably because I
    haven't worked out how to get root privs. Presumed this wasn't a
    problem because Terminal opened tcsh without a problem. The problem is
    Terminal is not accepting the wget command.

    What should I do now?

    Cheers (and thanks),

    Tris.

    Find a friend, relative, or colleague who has a broadband connect
    and a Mac with a CD burner who is willing to download the update
    and burn it onto a CD for you.
