I *did* install the SBC Yahoo! DSL software, but on a Mac

I am well aware of the horrors of installing the SBC Yahoo! DSL bundled software under Windows. I, however, did so on a Mac running OS X. From what I can tell, the installation merely added an 'SBC Yahoo! DSL' Ethernet port configuration to the Network control panel, and a PPPoE driver. (I use neither, as my router handles the PPPoE login.) Should I be worried about anything else?

I can't say anything about a Mac but I didn't install any SBC software on my Windoze machines. Like you I have a router to handle the PPPoE stuff so the SBC software wasn't even needed on my Win98 machine. The only problem I see in your setup is you now have unneeded software and I don't like having unneeded software on my machines.

Was a title bar added to your browser? I typically use Linux, but in Win98se I removed everything except the Yahoo title bar. Nothing (except a new enough browser) is needed to log into sbc.yahoo.com. Or I can log in from XP on my new PC or at work without any SBC Yahoo software.

That sounds about right. The Mac software is ok. It doesn't have any of the phone home features of the windows product.
