Installation Disks
 
anyone know the name of the program for grabbing specific things off of the install disks without doing complete install? i've used it before but it's been a few years and have forgotten the name.:\

Pacifist is what you're looking for.

Thank goodness for bookmarks.

I forgot it as soon as I read your post. :Blushing:

Yeah, all I could think of was "it starts with a P, I think".

A bit off the topic, but you may know... is there a software programme that if I want to move an application off an external HD to my internal HD, that finds a moves all the application support, preferences, and any other files to restore as it was.
For instance, if I want to move firefox, or mail etc, that it restores it completely as it was. Firefox with bookmarks, plugins, etc/Mail, setup and running with all related files, and so forth?

The reason I ask, is that I want to do a clean install, and then manually move over the apps, documents, pics, music, movies that I want.
With some applications I manage to find everything I need (as tedious as it is) and for some I have no success, and therefore, keep restoring from backup, as I don't want to have to start from scratch with certain applications.

Should I just start a new thread, and see if I have any luck?
