    I was going through the "November desktop" thread, and I noticed a picture where the computer had an external drive and his internal shown on the desktop and it said "LaCie 298.1 GB, 42.5 GB free".
    It looked like he was running Tiger, which I am too (still waiting for my UTD Leopard). Does anybody know how I can do this? So if I plug in my little 512 MB USB drive it'll automatically say how big it is and how much is free?


    Thanks.
