I just got a powerbook g4 and I love the thing to death, but it doesn't want to retain my preferences. Every time i shut it down and boot it back up again, the damn thing returns to its old settings, even though I am the administrator and File Vault is set to OFF. I am currently running Panther 10.3.9 Can anyone help me? This is really bumming me out on using macs. I just started using macs by the way.
