i really wouldnt mind paying the 20 bucks for the 5 user license....but i the store doesnt seem to work. i click on Solairs 9, x86 Media kit and get nothing. This isnt really a question i guess, but I'd really like to get it (the actual CD not a burn or a download of it). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


Edit: Ok, to have them send u the CD is like 96.00, i'll happily download it for 20 bucks. lol

also be warned that it's no picnic to install. I couldn't get it installed on my athlon system, i think it waws too exotic basically.... which is a strange thought.... When i've juggled my machines around i'm gonna have a spare p200 mmx vectra with a bog standard 2.4gb drive, which hopefully is so generic it will installer properly.
