Hi,

I have been using a mac for about two years now and in the last couple of months the computer has started to deveop faults. I took it the apple store and they reccomended that I completely format the whole system and reinstall tiger.

How do I format the computer?

Pop in your Tiger disk, turn off the computer, restart it and hold C while it boots to boot from the disc. Then chose the erase and install option.

I am now trying to backup my home folder, when I try and drag it to another computer via a wireless network it says "You do not have sufficient permissions". What do I have to do?
