    I just cant find where to turn the "verify image checksum" in panther, when mounting disk images. Is it still possible ?
    It (in 10.28) was in the disk copy prefs, now, where is this option ?
    thanks

    I think the main issue here is that Finder now handles disk images, instead of Disk Copy (which is now part of Disk Utility). Since I doubt there are any prefs for it in Finder, you'll probably have to do it manually in Disk Utility.

    Look in -
    /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/DiskImages.framework/Versions/A/Resources/defaults.plist

    Open this file and change-
    <!-- mounting pre-processing options -->
    <key>skip-verify</key>
    <false/>
    <key>skip-verify-remote</key>
    <true/>
    <key>skip-verify-locked</key>
    <false/>

    All the false flags must be true and viola no more verify!
