Place your palm on the mouse, and let me read your past ... Ah, it is clear that you have had to reinstall the System Software on your Mac! When you want to reinstall the System Software, you have your choice of installing the software in place, or doing a clean install . When you chose to do a clean install, the installer will create a brand new System Folder, and rename your old System Folder "Previous System Folder" . The Previous System Folder will lose its blessed System Folder icon, and look just like any other folder on the hard drive. Although this folder has a glorious past life, its future is bleak. After salvaging important preference files and extensions, it is best to trash the Previous System Folder.

Wouldn't it be grand if owners of Mac OS X could stop by their friendly local Apple Retail Store and pick up a FREE copy of the OS X 10.1 upgrade? That's exactly what happened on September 29, 2001, when Apple made available its free "Instant Up-to-Date" packages for Mac OS X 10.1. Dedicated Mac enthusiasts waited in lines longer than those for the premier of Phantom Menace, eager to get their hands on the revolutionary OS upgrade. And everyone knows that queue comes before X.

As destructive as it sounds, drag a disk to the trash and everything will be fine. Contrarily, Eject a disk in an older OS and you're left with an annoying ghost image on your desktop. Then when you try to do something that requires the ejected disk, you're stuck until you find that specific disk again. This can be a real pain if you have thousands of disks to chose from. Thank goodness for mp3!
