    Okay. Heres the deal. My brother gave me an old iBook G4 running Mac OS X 10.4.11 (133 MHz/512 MB). I would like to connect it using my Eris as a modem. Because my ibook is older I have downloaded ProxoID and I am trying to get it up and running. The online instructions I have found are either too difficult to understand or I am still trying to get used to using a Mac (coming from Windows). I have downloaded all the necessary programs and installed on both the iBook and Eris. I also followed these instructions:
    installationMaxOS - proxoid - Configure MacOS to use Proxoid - Project Hosting on Google Code

    I am stuck at this part: 3.a new blank one will open then type "export PATH=${PATH}:/android/tools"
    Does anyone have easier instructions or should I just use PDAnet? Is PDAnet easier to install and use AND will it work for 10.4.11 on my ibook? Thanks for the help.

    I have no experience with proxoid or mac os, but pdanet was very simple to set up and use. It worked fine for me when my internet was down. I was using windows.

    Scroll down on that page. That's where this is. This makes it a little bit easier. Before even doing this, make sure you go to

    Home > Menu > Settings > Applications > Development > Enable USB Debugging
