i recently got a new iMac G5 2GHz SD and i got a bad install of Tiger. So reinstall the OS and now when i go to save things (like a file from azureus, not the only example but it was the first to come to mind)i can see invisible folders and "documents." like a folder the says ".Spotlight-V1000" ".Trashes" "automount" "bin" cores" etc.
