    First I cannot, no matter what I do, get the Entourage Icon to stay in the dock. I am thinking uninstalling and reinstalling office 2000 might be the answer however the dock is doing other weird things too. Such as:

    ~automatically adding new application icons to itself when I put them in my applications folder. (Image Tricks, MPEG streamclip)

    ~keeping my idisk from syncing (I get some message about the dock permissions but I don't get this message always, usually it just says last sync failed). I just started using MobileMe and am really not liking the fact that I can't sync my idisk. As I understand it I should just be able to drag word docs or stuff like mp4's to it and then go to my other mac and they would be available to take off the idisk and use. Right now I am using a flashdrive to do this...

    Can anyone offer any help with these problems or can anyone suggest where I can find out more about dock permissions, or troubleshooting the dock?

    Run a permission repair. If that doesn't work, open a new Terminal window and run

    rm ~/Library/Preferences/*
    killall Dock

    Thanks BlueRevolution however those did not solve the problem. If I figure it out I will post what it was.
