    Hi everyone,

    Ok...I just bought a powerbook last week, but I am new to the whole mac world. This is my first mac but I had a question. Please excuse me if it is dumb. Under "So and So's Computer", there are two things listed: Mac HDD and Network. However, Network does not have an icon and I was wondering what this was used for? Can it be deleted? It says it is only readable and it takes up 0k. I have a Network icon on my sidebar which i do use to access my netork, however, the one listed under "so and so's computer" does not do anything when I click on it. Can I get rid of this? Thanks.

    Derrick

    That network is the same thing as the one in your sidebar, and no, you can't get rid of it. I would repair permissions (go into Disk Utility, select your HD, and click Repair Permissions), then log out and back in - see if that helps.

    Similar problem:

    I just got my Powerbook a few days ago. In Finder, on the left, under "Macintonsh HD", there was an icon for "Network". I decided I wanted that on my desktop, so I dragged it there, and POOF, it was gone. Is there anyway to get it back?

    Sorry bout the dumb question...I just switched from windows. =P

    The only dumb questions are the ones not asked.

    Welcome aboard.

    In Finder, go up to Finder... Preferences. Click on Sidebar, and check Network.
