    1) How do I delete all of the items and things stored in keychain and "start fresh"? There are a lot of passwords still stored in keychain that are linked to programs that have long been uninstalled already. I figure it's time for me to start from scratch again.

    2) I recently changed the wireless security of my WRT54G from WEP to WPA Personal. Now, whenever my iBook boots or wakes from sleep it forgets my wifi connection. How do I make it so keychain remembers the account information for my wifi network?

    Remove everything in ~/Library/Keychains. ~ meaning your home directory.

    Open Keychain Access and click "Show Keychains" in the bottom left corner if not already clicked.
    Check in the login keychain to see if the name of you wifi network is there if it isint look in the system keychain if its there drag that to your login keychain, worked for me. Or if that doesnt work you can go to airport prefs and change the automatic network selection to preferred networks then click the + to add your network.

    Well I couldn't get Keychain to remember my network's information so I bit the bullet and just reinstalled OS X. It remembers it now, thank God.

    *sigh* Oh well. At least this new fresh install of Tiger only takes up < 5 GB :)

    Thanks for trying to help, guys.
