Hello, I'm new to the Mac World. I only bought my PB last week so I'm still trying to figure out a couple of things. Just about the only huge problem I've found with Mac OS X so far is the following: I connect to an FTP Server via the "Go/Connect To" option. Once the connection icon shows up on my desktop, I open a Finder window and start browsing the remote files. If at that point something goes wrong with the connection to the FTP Server I get the beach ball and it is impossible to get rid of it. If I try to wait it out, it never goes away. If I try to logout or shutdown, the system hangs indefinetly and my only option is to reboot by holding down the power button for 4 seconds. I'm doing a lot of file sharing with a very unstable FTP server so I've had to reboot this way four times already. This to me seems a terrible problem and can't believe they haven't managed to fix it. Has this happened to anyone else? Is it a known problem? Does it only happen with FTP connections? Thanks for your help.
