i doubt that iScroll is the cause of the problem.

if your running tiger do a spotlight search for some of your documents and see where they are

Apple, think different

okay.. i was able to locate many of the items i was missing. the main problem was locating everything and setting up back to how it was prior to restarting. i'm not quite sure if this is normal but now i have to set up all my minor settings like bookmarks, ical and so forth. i hope this is normal... thanks all for your help. and yea this isn't one of the newer powerbooks w/ trackpad scrolling so i thought it would be fine. seems to be working.
