  • 1. how to stop volume mounts on desktop
    I use Toast to write session backups of small files to a CD-RW. Every time I load the disc in the drive, all the volumes (disc session backups) mount on the desktop. Besides being a clutter, it slows down the process because I have to wait for the full read and for all the discs to show up on the desktop. Is there any way to stop this from happening or is this just how Finder unavoidably works?
  • 2. Update Path
    I'm still at 10.5.4 -- I hesitated updating to 10.5.5 after hearing folks complain about a lot of problems they had after updating. When 10.5.5 came out, I once again heard "horror" stories. I've also heard that the "best" way to update was to do it manually, via a combo update, rather than allow Software Update perform the updates. At this point, what's the best way for me to proceed? I can allow Software Update take care of the complete 10.5.4>10.5.6 update, but perhaps I'm better off going the combo-upgrade route. If so, would that require a 2-stage process (first a combo to 10.5.5, followed by a combo to 10.5.6)? -- iMac (24", 2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 2GB RAM, 320 GB HDD) € OS X (10.5.4)
  • 3. Simple LAN diagnosis?
    For a novice is there an easy way to determine the cause of network connection problems? Situation: In our house we have what I think is called a LAN: a Netgear RT 314 Router. Connected to it are 2 Macs and a printer and the DSL connection. Problem: from time to time I can't "see" the other Mac on our net work or Retrospect will not be able to connect for a backup. OS: Mac 1: Tiger OS 10.4.11 Mac 2: Leopard OS 10.5.6 When these problems arise, I don't know where to start in terms of diagnosing the problem. For example, does File Sharing need to be on for me to see the other Mac? Or can I see it though not connect? I know I don't need it on for Retrospect to work from "Server" to "Client." Fortunately these problems are infrequent and I ask so that I'll be able to figure out the problem without a post such as this. Thanks for any suggestions.

Putting Vista On Boot Camp Partition

Well, I've been trying to get Vista on my Boot Camp partition, but 
every time I install it, it starts up, then after a few seconds it 
restarts itself.
During the boot sequence it names many missing files, and then doesn't boot.

I know the install is good; I've used it on my PC before.
What could be the problem?

All firmware and software is up to date.

Boot Camp works just fine, including my bluetooth kybd and mouse.

I'm new to the Apple world, so this might be a dumb question -
Now that I have XP Home SP2 installed on my iMac, prior to loading any
other software, can I use Norton Ghost, DriveImage Pro or Acronis True

understand the dual boot process so I'd like to get this info before
messing up an otherwise clean XP installation.

3.Mac OS X + Windows XP SP2 + Boot Camp + how to backup the WinXP partition

I have a MacBook on which I installed Boot Camp beta 1.4 and Windows
XP SP2 on a separate partition of the built-in drive. I can boot
either operating system according to my needs, even run them
simultaneously using Parallels. I love this setup but I fear losing it
to a virus, so I would like to make a complete backup of my Windows
partition, now that it has all my favourite software on it, so as to
be able to restore it simply booting into Mac OS and using a backup
image file should I be forced to. I have used Disk Utility to create a
dmg of the NTFS section on an external FAT32 drive but I am not sure
in the event of a disaster this would bring back everything the way it
was, including the dual boot capability. Would it? I had rather not
find out the hard way. :-) Is there a better way to accomplish the
above, perhaps with different software? Many thanks in advance, I
suspect others have faced a similar dilemma so I look forward to your

Dear friend, could you explain what "DriveImage XML" means? I have found
"Acronis DriveImage 10.0", but not any product with a similar name with
the "XML" suffix.
