    you should also be able to find it by running a spotlight search for "terminal".

    Edit: OK I didn't read the OP properly. Did you find it anyway?

    Then you deleted your utilities folder. You're screwed. That's a crazy important folder.

    yeah having no utilities folder wouldn't be a good thing. Has it really vanished? You might want to confirm this... :eek:

    An archive and install should put everything back.

    Archive and install doesn't delete files, it just repairs to OS, and moves the files to another folder.

    Oh I see. I have never had the need to do that. How is that achieved?

    It's fairly easy to A&I. I just did it for the first time a few weeks ago and everything went well. MAKE SURE the box is checked that is mentioned in this thread:

    http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=683830&highlight=archive+Install

    This is the box I'm talking about. It comes up when you choose to A&I. It's the option to "preserve users and network settings".

    Yes, you can do it on Tiger (if you have the proper install discs.)

    This is the 10.5.6 version so I am not sure if it'll work on Tiger. Though for some reason I bet it's still on your computer and you are just not looking hard enough.

    You can use Pacifist and extract Terminal from your OS install discs. You may not even need that though, pop in your discs and see if you can find it on your own.
