    I remember reading a tip where if you click on the gray text displaying the name of your computer on the login box, it gives you more information, like your IP address, the time, and the build and version of OS X. What I don't understand is the information followed by a red bubble stating "Network Accounts (or Users, I forgot) Not Available". What does this mean? Does it have something to do with me not having the Xserve version of OS X or ARD?

    Cool-- never seen that before!

    Not really sure what it means-- probably is an OS X Server or ARD feature... Or NIS.

    Sort of. If means that it can't find a remote swerver that provides logins (could be X Server, could be a stack of ham sandwiches, whatever works), and that's normal for a standalone/home setup.

    You have to lube™ them up with extra mayo to make everything swerve properly, but once you've established a trusted connection, your bits will slide down the tubes like nobody's business.
