Firewire, 4g 40 gig ipod. I dont know if its formatted. Whenever I try to turn it on an icon of a folder comes up. The mouse thing is really bugging me. Say if I wanted to click the red dot to close the window, if I move the arrow in the proximity of the red dot then try to move it the rest of the way to the red dot it moves really slow.

Give USB Overdrive a try. It should help you speed it up a bit.

If the iPod has a icon of a folder, there is something gone wrong with the iPod. Sounds like it's hard drive.

Is there any way to permanently set the Safari text larger? It always reverts back to small text when I open a new window.

Go to Safari > Preferences and choose the tab that says "Advanced". Once you're there, check "Never use font sizes smalller than ..." and choose whatever size you want (in pixels).

1) if a program freezes hold down: apple + option + esc then force quit the app.
2) i dont understand
3) go to the top left theres a blue apple, click it and all the options are at the bottom of the menu.

[Looks like I was too slow ]

To quit a program that has frozen click and hold the program's icon in the dock and then press option [alt] and select "Force Quit".

Also, I don't know why you would want to use Front Row to play music but display nothing. Just use iTunes and black screensaver? Maybe I just don't understand what you mean...

Putting computer to sleep, restarting, and turning off are quire simple tasks... just use the blue Apple logo in the menu bar on top.

Maybe you should just read the beginner's guide that came with your new iMac? I know I had some kind of tutorial bundled with my iMac G5.
