How can I tell if it is still indexing and how long does it take ona clean and jerk install that wipes the HD ? I was experiencing VERY choppy genie efects and dock animations for about 2 hours after the install of Leopard.... oddly seems to come and go WTF

You will see a dot in the middle of the spotlight magnifying glass, and when you click on spotlight it will tell you that its indexing.
