I havent been keeping up with discussions so can you guys tell me, how hard is it to: erase the boot drive on my dual 867 and repartition say for 3 parts, X.2-9.2 and one for storage? I have heard it was better to have OS x on its own partition and I'd like to have the storage part separate, just easier to optimize this way? ANYWAY can't I Just erase the boot drive reinstall jaguar and at the same time repartition and then install 9.2.2? Isn't that on the Mac disks for the new Machines? I'm asking even though I have a new Machine, I haven't tried any of this yet, thought I would seeek some wisdom on here before I did a thing! a very greatful Thanks daniel Ps do you still have to register a machine even if you bought it from apple?
