    Do you get any sort of error message? Does it load partially?

    No problem whatsoever. What are your Mac details?
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    I'm not sure what that error message is in English but it looks like it's the default page that Safari shows when it can't seem to load the page.

    Let's try something. If you go to this URL (it's the IP address for the page), does it load? If so, it's a DNS issue (which would affect all browsers). If it doesn't, we can at least scratch off DNS issue as the problem.

    Sorry! I forgot it was in Danish :-) haha

    It says something about the page which can't be shown and the server won't answer

    It still won't load with the IP address...

    Follow the instructions here to do what is called "pinging." Essentially, you're going to send little bits of data to the website and see if it responds. The only adaptation you need to make to those instructions is to replace yahoo.com with the site that isn't working.

    Repeat the pinging test on your Windows PC. Looks like you just can't talk to that IP address. If your Windows PC works, are they on the same network?

    Sounds like your host file may be hosed. Check your host file to make sure that website and perhaps some others are not addressed there.
