It means you have to install the disk (As far as I know). I'm also not 100% sure, but I think you can't install later expansions unless you have all the previous ones instaled, i.e, you can't install CoP unless you have Zilart installed, therefore you can't install ToAU unless CoP is installed. Like I said I "think" that's how it works, but I'm not 100% positive.

As far as farming, it's kind of pointless asking people where to farm. TBH if someone has an awesome, high gil making spot, the last thing they're going to do is share it with others and ruin their market. The economy has been deflated a great deal in the last year or so, those same onions now may sell for around 5-6k a stack. It balances out though in that a Scorpion harness, for example, no longer costs 2mil gil, it's more like 130k-ish.

Really the best way to make money with BST is just xp. You'll get a ton of Beastmen seal's as you level and you'll be able to use those to do BCNM's. Barring that, most low level farming stuff you remember is still popular and still sells well, wild onions, beehive chips, silk threads, etc, so the areas you remember being viable farming spots will still work. Konschtat Highlands (sp?) was always my favorite low level farming zone. Sheepskins (crafted into sheep leather to make room) and other sheep drops, beehive chips, lightning clusters, Ram parts, and also the chance to bag Stray Mary and her Mary's Horn (200k or so)

Good luck and welcome back Smiley: smile

Could be you're sitting in a CoP area, I'm assuming you had CoP the last time you played?

Though I don't play anymore, I played on PS2 from FFXI's release all the way up through this past September. All I ever had to do was put the disc in for whatever expansion and it took me to it's title screen with 2 options:

Play movie

Install

The movie was the same on the first 2 so I stopped watching after CoP. The install option probably speaks for itself. =P

I'm not 100% sure though, I never bought an expansion without having the ones before it. So I'm not sure how that works.

As for farming, pretty much what Dread said. People rarely wanna give up their spots publicly, but it's somewhat easy to find your own place/way to make gil regardless.

Anyway, good luck!
