    I have two users on my PB running Tiger. I am trying to transfer some files from one user to the next. I'm sure my drop box is not configured correctly, although I have "read and write" and all the access allowed, its still not working for me. I am opening the "public" folder- then "drop box" then dropping in my files. Then I user switch and goto the drop box on the other side, but no joy. Any ideas as to my mix up. Thanks!

    User A's drop box is readable only by A, but is writeable by others. Thus if you are trying to read User A's drop box from User B's account, .... well, you can't, that's not how it works. It's the Public folder that other users can access.
