    So I went to go and find iMovie, and I cannot find it. Everything else is there, Can I reinstall it without reinstalling the entire works (i.e losing everything)? if so how?

    Sure. Just open the install disks with Pacifist and install the iMovie package.

    Or ... Insert OS X Install Disc 1, and choose Install Bundled Software and only choose iMovie.

    Thanks folks!

    I used Pacifist, and it worked perfectly.

    Love this place!

    Well, technically, "I" didn't lose it. A friend of mine, much more computer illiterate than I, went to use it and realized it was gone. He thinks he may have accidentally deleted it. (so instead of explaining the entire story, I just asked the question on his behalf, I guess)
    I found this strange, so I told him to give me his notebook, and disks, and i'd see if I could remedy it. (he forgot to give me his magsafe - see my post in the macbook forum)

    After combing the machine, there was no sign of imovie. So I tried to insert the disk, but since I've never had to do this, I was lost pretty much from the word 'go'.

    All is well now though!
