    The last of my 3 issues (once again, I'm a OS X newbie) was after I installed programs, and would drag to the dock to make an icon... after I restarted the mac, or shut it down and then it loaded back OS X, only the default OS X icons were in the dock... My Firefox and AIM icons were no longer in the dock where I put them.

    Am I missing something?

    Thanks,
    Bryan

    User preferences are one of the first things to go when you're running low on space. How much free hard drive space do you have?

    Having said that, you'd be noticing a massive slow down and some other quirky mishaps so that probably won't be the problem. Is the problem only with the Dock? Maybe find a file named com.apple.dock.plist and drag it to the Desktop. This will put your Dock back to it's default settings but will then hopefully remember any future changes. :)
