Hi, I do have an iBook in front of me, that is too slow to work with OS X, but it will be usefull to a friend in Nicaragua. It works perfectly, but there is one issue I can´t resolve: When I connect an USB drive and copy an item to the desktop ( or elsewhere on the iBook) it appears there. But when I eject the external drive it disappears again. Once connected to the drive again it shows up where I left it on the desktop. It seems that it just creates an alias and the only way around is to open each document and to "save as.." on the iBook. That is annoying and impossible with applications. On the other hand it copies fine from the iBook to the external drive. I searched quite a lot of forums and manuals, but I couldn´t find that anyone mentioned that problem. Thanks, Daniel.
