    I have an iMac G5. When I push the start button it flashes a globe and some

    other symbol that escapes me at the moment. Why is it doing this? I have

    tried to find an answer everywhere and have had no luck. It does this for a

    minute or so and then start fine and runs great. I am clueless.......

    It's looking to NetBoot.

    Go into System Preferences -> Staertup Disk -> Choose your startup disk.

    Restart.

    No more NetBoot icon, right?

    Or if you're too lazy to wait for it to boot all the way:

    Press and hold <COMMAND> <OPTION> <P> <R> at (re-)boot until you hear the startup chime twice.
    That sets the PRAM boot device back to "default": first internal HD.
