    Hi again, just wondering if its possible to create a new user in my newly partitioned drive.
    What I'm talking about is the Home Folder in the sidebar at Places. just in-between Desktop and Applications. I know my current home usernamed folder is accessing my original hd space.

    Is there any way to create this new home folder?

    I think you're slightly confusing the issue. It sounds like you want a folder on your external disk to show up in your side bar. To do that, you just create a new folder on your external drive named "my 2nd home" or whatever you want, then drag that folder into the sidebar.

    Done.

    And you can put whatever you like there, including applications like WOW. Applications do not have to stay in your user's "Applications" folder.

    You're welcome. Glad you're enjoying the Mac. I just reread what you're trying to do, and there may be an even better solution. If you want WOW to be in you applications folder but want the application to live on your external drive, all you have to do is have WOW living on your external drive and then just make an alias to the WOW application which you then put in your Applications folder. That way WOW shows up in you applications list, but the hard disk space it occupies is on your external drive.

    I don't think I described that very well. If you need clarification just let me know.
