    I am working in a lab with say 20 workstations and one os x server. Whenever I (or any given user) expands a directory it shows up as such to all other users. So if I forget to collapse the directory, everyone gets irritated. I am being told to simply double click the folder I want to open a new window. This is different than I am used to working (on win 2003 server) and it will be a hard habit to break…the question is whether or not it is possible to keep each user from seeing the folder behavior of the other users. It seems a little silly for it to be this way. Other than that I am actually loving my new mac home.

    Are they using a Admin account on the server (roaming account)?
