    How do you change the hard drive icon picture in the top right corner to look like the macbook pro computer? I've seen this on a couple people's desktops and was just wondering how you do it. Also, how do you change the folder icon to something that looks cooler.

    First find some icons you like, the icons for Leopard are more complex than the old ones but you can use almost anything you find on the web.
    Next do a "get info" Command+I, with the icon that you want to copy selected.
    Put the cursor on the picture at the top left of the "info" window and do a copy, "command+c"
    Then, select the icon you want to change, and select the picture and do a paste, Command+v.
    Voila, new icon, works for hard disks and folders.:cool:
