Mac OS/X removing CUDA

Apple Mac & Nvidia - CUDA requires 1.3 Computer Capabil

It has taken me some time to install and test CUDA on my early 2008 Macbook Pro, which has the NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT 256 MB.

Using Blender on a Mac Notebook

Ok, answering my own questions here. I have found the undo function and i have progressed through the tutorial, though it is a bit like pulling teeth.
