Apple's online directions for starting up a wireless network are confusing. One set of directions says simply plug in the Airport Express unit and then click on the Airport utility in the Applications folder.

Another set of directions says you need to insert the install CD into the Mac Mini in order to set up the network.

Are the contents of this CD (admin features) already pre-loaded onto my Mac Mini?

EDIT: according to this, the answer is NO, I don't need to use the CD install disk:

That is correct. You DON'T need the CD. That is for PC users or if you have an older, un-updated version of Airport Utility.

Just plug it in, open Airport Utility, make your settings and enjoy.

Easy Peasy.
