I'm looking for a good powerbook g4 icon (opened, with the default aqua wallpaper instead of pure black) and can't seem to find one. Help?

I know it doesn't look like it from the preview picture, but if you download, I think you'll find it's what' you're looking for.

i really like the magnum opus icon for the 15", but does anyone know of an easy way to paste the default aqua background on the screen?

Select the icon, then command-i for get info. Click on the small icon in the upper left corner of the window. Cmd+c to copy. Next, go to the (for example) hard drive, and cmd+i again. click on hard drive icon in upper left corner. cmd+v to paste in the new icon. Voila!

You can also use a program like CandyBar (which is what I use), which affords you the ability to roll everything back to the originals.

CandyBar (which costs) can be found here: http://www.panic.com/candybar/

CandyBar is good for changing icons that are deeper in the system, like the default icon for external or internal HDs, and stuff like that. For individual icons (a specific HD or folder), it's easier to just use the Finder.
Also, to return to the default icon for something, just use the Info window, select the icon, and press cmd-x (cut). All done!

magnum opus is awesome.

I use their blueberry clamshell on my iBook clamshell and it looks awesome! I don't like the iBook G4 icon though, because it's like kinda long vertical and if I make my icons small it looks bad. On the clamshell, I keep the big because I don't have anything else on the desktop.
