I'm really new to the mac world. I had used Apple II+'s - GS's, but had swapped to DOS and windows based machines in college. I'm now coming back to Mac, and I have a question...
Ok - let's say I add a hard drive to a Mac Pro - I assume it will show up in the partitioner, and once partitions are created and drive formatted, it will show up on the desktop like other drives do - at this point, I assume I can use it. What do I need to do (if anything) to integrate it into my personal home folder?
I know on unix/linux, you can mount a given partition to a specific folder, but I wasn't sure about the proper procedure on a mac with OS X 10.5.x
Or do I just open it as a seperate hard drive on my desktop and create a folder in it and start saving my stuff?
I'm sorry about what must seem to be a simple question, but I really don't know the story behind this - my mac will be here early next week, and I have some larger sata drives I plan to add to it from my decomissioned pc.
I know the machine has leopard OS, I don't know what subversion off hand.
Any info, or even links where I can read about it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
