Well, I've managed to screw up my Mac. I was trying to install an lzma program but when I went to place it in the 'bin' it replaced 'bin' ... or was it bash. I'm not sure and I don't know how to fix it. http://lzma.darwinports.com/ http://tukaani.org/lzma/download I do know how to use the terminal and use the boot CD so I'm hoping someone can tell me what files to copy back and to where. I tried to copy 'bin' back from the CD and now I can't see my Mac OS HDD, it boots, its just not showing in the GUI. I'm almost set to re-install mac os.... will I loose all my pictures and music if I do re-install Mac OS x? Thanks for the help.
