    Unable to empty trash
    Does anyone know how to empty the trash? I saw how to fix this problem in a copy of Mac Magazine, but do not have access to it now.
    Thanks

    Have you tried a reboot if all else fails?
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    8001 - that's a new one to me.

    Try rebooting as suggested. If that doesn't work, take a look here.
