For anyone who had the iMac icon on their desktop, does that icon come with Mac OS X? If not, where can I get icons like that. Also, if I change my harddrive picture (or computer) is there a backup of my icons?

This is my background...

It's actually a pretty high res picture but I shrunk it for the forums. It fits my 15-inch PowerBook screen perfectly.

My dock feels inadequate compared to some of the one's in these pictures. I know I shouldn't contrast and compare docks, but I can't help. I'm just going to have to find a way for me to get a longer dock. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Fedora Core 5. Works awesome. I got my iBook with a bad HD for free. So I took the 40 gig out of my fried HP and put it in there and it works good. Sometime this month my dad is gonna buy me Tiger and iLife 06. :)

The guy I got it from said it was a 1.2GHZ with 256MB but turns out it was a 933MHZ with a nice 512 stick in there. :) Its got the CD-RW/DVD-ROM slot combo. :D

I figured I would update, since I put a little work into it this morning... :)

Just found out myself earlier today - use Dock Seperators (http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/19733). Pretty simple to use, read the included documentation if you need clarification.

Sorry about that, hit the wrong button.

Do you mean the % at the top? Where it says CPU A at the top will only display one core of one CPU at a time, I can set it for any of them to display. That's an average of the all 4 cores, the green bars at the bottom right are the Activity Monitor showing all 4 cores...
