    Hey, does anyone know if I can pull the Garageband/iDVD library folders (in the Library) off of my laptop and stick them in an external hard drive. Maybe make an alias to it?

    I would never use these when my computer wasn't at my desk anyway (Garageband itself is unusable on my 933MHz iBook unless it is hooked up to an outlet) and I would like to conserve space. I was watching the keynote and thinking that those iMovie themes would be fun to play with... but with 8gigs left on my laptop hard drive... well... not sure how that'll fly.

    Anyone try this?

    Follow up: It works! For '05 anyway, I'll know about '06 in a few days...

    (the key is to make a symbolic link, not an alias)
