    copying folders in terminal

    You have to use the "nohup" command to detach the cp process from the terminal. "man nohup" will tell you more. "nohup" means "do not react on the HUP (hang up) signal!". The output will be redirected automatically to a file named "nohup.out".

    On my (German) 10.4. the option is on the right. It is a button below the dropdown boxes for colors and refresh rate. It should be named "detect monitors".

    On a typical flatscreen, the resolution should be much bigger, something like 1280x1024 is minimum for 4:3 screens. Try to increase the resolution or to redetect your monitor.

    Disk Utility should be able to do so. Or do you want to do it from a program of your own?

    Have you clicked on "Show certicate?" At least in Safari you can then select to trust this certificate. Edit: Sorry for the duplicate suggestion, I hadn't noticed page 2 of the thread. :(

    Firefox 2.0.14 crashes on iBook G4

    I haven't checked console and will not be able to do so, at least not in the same environment. I'm just reinstalling Tiger from scratch and will try again. Edit: Firefox seems to run now. There was probably a faulty system extension or plugin installed. If anything goes wrong in the future...

    I've just acquired a used iBook G4 off eBay (512 MB, 1GHz) in order to use it as my living room Internet access terminal. Firefox 2.0.14 crashes upon loading almost any page.

    The settings you show are for outside access to your Mac and of no relevance in your case. You need a Samba Guru to help you. A probable cause of your trouble could be that recent versions of the Samba client (as Mac OS comes with) can use a higher level of authentication against the Windows...

    HP laserjet 4300tn setup confusion

    You should setup a separate network configuration for the MB if "on the go". In network preferences there is an easy way to select between multiple configurations.

    HP laserjet 4300tn setup confusion

    The MacBook doesn't need a X cable, the port should detect the wiring itself, at least my MB Pro does. The trouble might be, that the MacBook and/or Printer don't have an IP address because they are configured for DHCP. Outside your Network, there is no DHCP server to assign an address. The same...
