    Yeah, just waiting to go to the airport and sweat my back end off in 95-degree heat in a two seat helicopter with a lawnmower engine attached for two hours.

    I'm putting off leaving, that's for sure.

    EDIT: And yes, you can name it whatever you want just like a file.

    Nice call AmigoMac. :D

    It's a shame about your back end iGary. I hope they can get that lawnmower engine off it in less than two hours.

    I've attached mine, the network icon is my iBook. :)

    i have been very boring in naming my partitions; they are: "system", "users", "shared" for the internal drive, and "apps", "storage", "work", "backup" for the external drives.

    Drue (Norwegian for "Grape").

    All my HDs are named after fruit. On my old pismo I had two partitions and called those Eple and Pære ("Apple", duh, and "Pear"). I also have two external drive which showed up with the orange icon and thus was called Appelsin ("Orange") and Mango.
