hey guys i wanna kno if theres a solution to this...for example in my pics folder if i highlight about 5 pics and hit control+I...it'll open 5 windows, each corresponding to each pic. before i thought i was able to hit cntrl+i before, and itll give me info of those items in 1 finder windows combined, hence showing me the total space of the 5 items...did i undo a setting somehow in the finder prefrences???

No, this is a change with Tiger, and not one we're all happy with. I believe (on a windowz machine ATM, so I can't check), there's a selection under the file menu for multiple item get info.

option click on the "File" menu. you'll see "Show Inspector" instead of "Get Info".
