    Problem mounting Blank media (CD/DVD)

    ok have you got a different blank cd/dvd make just to make sure its not just the disk? Like a spare one hanging around you don't need to waste your money but if you have a different make that would help us remove some of the problems. in the mean time i will have to have a think. its prob not a major problem since everything else sees it accept the desktop....

    Data backup

    Totally agree with Matt. Geting an exeternal HD is the best way and will be future prooth. But if its cheap or free then Apple way it is. I dont think you get any say on what Apple backups on behalf of you so if your looking customisation then its the HD way. I am looking to invest into a HD in the future because i am even finding the present generation of DVDs to limiting on space. :?

    Data backup

    Apple have a great archieve and install feature on OS X. I did it the other day i screwed my system up. Insert the disk. Push the achieve install button. It then installs OS X afresh then copy all your dater, settings, bookmarks, wallpaper EVERYTHING back into place like you never known it was erased! The only thing you will need to do is to delete the old system directory in the root folder once its done called previous system or something. A little drag and drop in the bin and you have your space back.
  12. hello Can anybody tell me or point me in the right direction on how to set up remote desktop. So i can connect to the PC from my mac via the Remote Desktop Connection program. thanks.

    How will Intel affect Xserve

    I agree. But for some high performance community the PPC platform is their fav. however i think your right apple will follow suit or grab the next big thing intel throw out. Apple server prices and software are extrememly competive for what you get. Consider server software pricing of that Other Company and Apple's. Apple beat on pricing. The bonus is also that it is open source and built on UNIX. I think once Apple get an Xserve Intel version we may see their server market grow. Intel have been leading the server market for ages, why do you think AMD had finally caught up because its big money.

    Love it! Just some quick questions...

    well under Mac OS Tiger i just simply select the files press command-i and one info window opens up with the info. What version of OS X do you run?

    How will Intel affect Xserve

    It uses Intel's IOP 331 chip, a derivative of the XScale processor. So no its not a funky brand that you see on the TV but it is technically made by intel. Remember this is for Xserve Raid, the current Xserve is a G5 however.
