    re-install advice
    Just a small bit of advice needed.

    I need to re install my system softwear on my powerbook, but i have all my music in Itunes and dont want to re upload them all.

    Does re installing the system completley erase the hard drive or will i be able to keep my upto date itunes and all of my music?

    If you do an archive and install then it just does the system re-install. I just did this on my powerbook and everything was exactly the same when it was done. Sometime you will need to re-enter you paswords for your programs but that is about it.

    Yep, archive and install. It's an absolute saviour - everything will be the same, but the system side of things fixed. I wish 'doze had that
