Hi guys, I' Mark (again...): I got a small "problem" when my iMac 17inch starts up; well, it's generally faster than my old iMac G3 400 but it stands for about 30-45 seconds on "Waiting for network initialization" and I don't really know why. I checked these things (but still stand on Waiting for network initialization....): - Startup Volumes: yes, it doesn't startup via network - Sharing and Firewall: I disabled firewall and all the stuff as personal web sharing, personal file sharing.... - I checked I had the firmware updated - I checked I had the OS updated (10.2.3) Any ideas? Another "problem" is: I cannot change my Home icon. I logged in as root and changed them but can't see the new icons when not root..... Why? Maybe the fault could be mine: my Home folder is no longer in "Users"... (I changed it via Netinfo manager). Thanks a million, you're really kind answering me.
