I just did a first time fresh install of TIGER. I updated everything from the web(10.4.1), and then installed all my apps!! I want to make an IMAGE so if something screws up i can just restore and go back to where it is NOW! Sounds easy enough right? NOPE, i cant get it to do the image, i go to the:
Disk Utility>Macintosh HD >NEW IMAGE
asks me for name of file and where and set to compress, and then i get "Resource busy" Thats it i cant get i to work i have tried differnt locations, different names of the file, still same results. Even if i play with the compression or go to read only or whatever i get same results? If i do a restart and then try same thing? any ideas? This is pretty frustrating.
Oh just another thing is kinda funny, whenever i restart or shutdown then power back on my "Show View Options" i had set to aply to all windows arrange by Name, doesnt stay, so anything saved or added to any folders or windows no longer auto arranges, only does this if i restart or shutdown and start up again? any ideas? Should i have stayed with my Panther?

resource is busy because you are currently using the drive. Make an image of the drive using another computer treating that computer as a target disk.
