This is the first mac I've had problems with. I cannot install any software, I can't edit privileges so that I can truly have administrator privileges, and I cannot mount any images. Basically so far this imac has been useless. I can't even backup the hard drive. I bought this imac so I can use it as a server. The imac is a 2001 or 2002 I don't know exactly what model another problem with this computer. I'm in the dark!! Help please!!
