    login options/recommendations

    Hello, We just received our new xserve, what a difference from the old tower we are replacing. Currently we are only serving a publishing lab, about 15 macs but will be expanding that I'm sure once people get wind of it. One thing I'd like to change is how they authenticate. Right now...

    what options are available to backup?

    I use backup exec on our netware and windows servers, I recently inherited the xserve which is great because I also got a 17inch pb to go with it. The previous person has retrospect running, which is ok but I'm not confident their tape rotation is working as they described. In trying to...

    getting songs not to play on ipod

    Hello, I've got a the ipod photo and use the Griffin itrip fm transmitter. Works as good as I would expect it to, no complaints on how it performs. However, one thing I dislike and it probably isnt related is that when I use the ipod on shuffle it plays the itrip files. I've unchecked the...

    USB Drive doesnt work after 10.2 upgrade.

    I have a maxtor USB (only) 120 gig drive that stopped working the moment I upgraded to 10.2. Subsequent patches have not helped matters. Maxtor says its apples problem, apple says its maxtors problem. These are supposed to be fully supported under osx. They were until the 10.2. I've resized...

    Dumb question, but is it possible to take a usb drive to a pc, copy files, and then take it to a osx box and be able to see those files? I ask because I have a 30gig plus of data I want to move to my mac and its not possible to network them(physically).

    OS 9 Interface

    Others will probably boo and hiss, but I loved the OS9 interface, it was so easy to use and easy to teach someone to use. OSX is entirely un-mac IMHO. There are many annoying features of OSX that I havent figured out how to crack yet, such as the default folders, alias' not following...
