    That's what it does in Leopard, the only OS I can test at the moment. :apple:

    The sidebar can't gain keyboard focus. If you look under the Go menu in Finder you'll find keyboard shortcuts to move yourself between a number of those items though. For other drives you can go to Computer, then the Volumes folder. Alternatively you can hit command+shift+g and enter the path of where you want to go.
