I just purchased a iMac INTEL (2gig ram, 256mb vram). I have everything kinda locked down. I have my pop email accounts setup, bookmarks, setup history/cookie clearing for browser, installed adium to use aim, setup firewall, configed wireless but ended up using cord (played with wireless for when its needed one day). I have all the basics somewhat locked down as this is the first time I have ever played with a mac at all. One thing I'm still stuck on is the bottom menu. I seen a few screen shots of other macs and it seems as if they have a transparent background (so only icons display) rather then the light purple which is standard, also when I seen the screen shot it looked as if the menu icons was small and when you moved your mouse over the icons they blew up in size when hovering over them, any idea on how to do this? Also, I'm having issues installing flash player. I seem to have installed it but, its still not working. Is there and issue with flash player and mac os x 10.4.4?
