    hey guys I would like to reformat my blackbook, but I don't know how I should go about it, can someone tell me some steps and other things I should do before I go on about it. Btw is there a program that lets me save or backup programs I would want back onto my blackbook?

    1. back up your data
    2. put your install/system disk in the drive
    3. restart the computer holding the C key
    4. after you get beyond the licensing information, select tools-> Disk utility
    5. reformat
    6. Exit disk utility
    7. install OSX
