    Hi guys

    Im new to the forum for posting but have been around for a while soaking up info

    I have a mac mini c2d 2ghz, ive had it for a few years now and its always behaved, its always on and is an excellent computer for what i need, its now running snow leopard.

    What i would like to do is turn it into a dedicated media centre as im looking at either a new mini or if i can stretch the wallet, an*i3 imac

    Is there anyway i can boot directly into front row on my mini, without having to boot to the desktop, then to front row, i know its not so much bother to do the latter, just believe it would look better booting to front row or any other dedicated media centre software,

    All movies, pics and music will be stored on the minis hard drive or aliased to an external drive

    I have searched in the forums and also with google, but cant find anything about the automatic booting into the media centre

    Many thanks in advance

    J

    take frontrow out of apps and put it in startup items , makes things easier ,but front row is no separate operating system its just a app like itunes , so you can not boot it
