    Yesterday, after many months of having a Jaguar disk that didn't work (and that Apple refused replace) I finally got a working copy. I backed up all my stuff, then booted from the CD.

    I used the Disk Utility to ERASE THE HARD DRIVE AND REFORMAT. So everything was gone. Then I clicked 'install'.

    After it installed, I restarted, and it was all perfect. It really flies.
    Then I realised that I'd forgotten to back up the Desktop Patterns part of the Library, which it annoying, because I'd just got a whole lot of Halle Berry desktops and was enjoying them. But what the hell - you always lose something.

    So this morning, I thought I'd go looking for some new desktops, downloaded a few from www.pixelgirlpresents.com (great site) and went to put them on my desktop. When I did that, I discovered that there is STILL a folder called 'Halle!' in the desktop picture folders - even though there are no pix, and doing a search on my drive for the word 'Halle' doesn't reveal anything (except for 'Hallelujiah.mp3!)

    How did this happen!!?? I ERASED THE DRIVE. EVERYTHING! I simply do not understand how there can still be a Halle folder. It's gone.

    you have to reboot after you format...then install. otherwise it doesnt work properly. in fact i would recommend you do so the right way this time, because i did this too and my jaguar took about 3 weeks and then it was dogslow.
