    :eek:I have been fixing my permissions by just using the disk utility in the app. folder. I don't remember if this is the way you should do it or to get a good clean should I use the startup disk and hold down the c key. I used to do that yrs. ago. If you should do that I only have the origanal panther disk, 10.3. I since have 10.4.11, but no Tiger disk. Can I use the panther disk to use that utility or is using disk utility all I need to worry about ?? I'm so curious if I have been doing it wrong all this time.
    Thanks for any help.:confused:

    Fixing permissions is fine just running it from the hard drive. I think that you are thinking of Disk Repair, which does do a more complete job if it is run from another drive (like the dvd drive).
