    I have the Leopard OS 10.5.5. and a MacPRO. I can't move a folder to the dock. When I drag a folder to the dock, the existing icons do not move apart to make space for the folder and when I release the mouse, the folder is not inserted.

    Help.

    Thanks.

    If you drag a folder to the dock it has to be to the right of any applications and to the left of the trash can.

    Restart your dock by typing "killall Dock" (without the quotes, is case-sensitive) into Terminal and press enter.

    You can only add folders next to the trashcan; not in the area reserved for applications.
