What do I have to do to look at the page in/page out data to see how my white intel imac with leo is running, whats a good number? Likewise is their a way on mac to see how "resources" are spread and to see what is taking up space on the HD.

Looking to make sure the machine running at its full potential.

Activity Monitor in Utilities, look at the ratio (in system memory tab) you want it to be low anything like 1:1 you'll want more ram. Post back your data for advise.

For Hd space
WhatSize or Disk InventoryX

Download iStat Pro. You can see how many page-ins/page-outs easily. Pretty much as long as your pageouts are smaller than your pageins, you're good. Just make sure to set the Memory option to 'Advanced.'

Your ratio is at 0.20 which is fine.

Re the temps they seem normal to me, on my iMac C2D they are all about 120 F

It's the rate at which page outs accumulate after a restart which is what's important. Of course, you must take into account what sort of apps are being used during that time too, since some apps may artificially inflate that figure.
