Hello all,

Following a thread read recently, I found the Japanese 7.1 Pro images and
have dl'd them. I have a CD Burner of my Mac, though I am unsure if they
will properly burn the .iso files. Is there a utility that will allow me to
mount the .iso files locally on the existing (bought and paid for) 7.0 Pro
system and perform a 7.1 upgrade?

Also, never received a reply on my previous question re: upgrade via ftp
from 7.0 to 7.1. I'm just trying to find a way to upgrade to 7.1 without
having to purchase new CD's - I just bought 7.0 in a bookstore that didn't
have 7.1 yet.

Here was my previous question:

If no one's too busy debating European totalitarianism, I'm a newbie who
could really use some help here. :)
