    I have a question, Since Norton Utilities was updated to be compatible with Jaguar. making the bootable version on the app cd obsolete, plus it only boots up on classic. Is there anyway to make a Mac os X bootable cd with the latest version of norton utilities? So that you can run norton disk doctor from a cd and fix or verify your HD, with the latest version of the app?

    Because Symantec has being a little bit slow on this.

    Another question is regarding the user accounts, i created 2 accounts for my friends, they were regular accounts,not admins, i was the admin,so i deleted their accounts, and it placed them on the user deleted user accounts folder, thats ok, but it hasn't deleted their accounts from the accounts system prefference (i.e. you still see their names and their icons. Has anyone encountered this?
    - Thanks

    Gone but not forgotten.
    I don't know of a way to create a Mac OS X-bootable CD-ROM although I'd suspect that you should be able to duplicate parts of the Mac OS X installation CD-ROM and add NU 7.0.x. Whether Apple would be happy about that, I don't know.

    I recall reading that Symantec was waiting for help/approval from Apple before they made a Mac OS X-bootable CD-ROM.

    As for the deleted accounts, I just managed to drag one to the trash and empty the trash from version 10.2 although I wasn't able to do this with 10.1.x.
