    Unhappy Mac G5 Boot Problem
    When I'm trying to open my Apple G5, I see an earth icon inside a rectangle. This problem occured after I move my harddisk to another computer which has got Microsoft XP. How can I solve this problem? Thanks

    You could try holding down the option key on startup and selecting your HD... I thought the globe icon thing meant it was trying some class of network start up? Could be wrong.
