    Drag your iTunes Folder from your Music folder to the external. This folder should contain all your tracks and playlists.

    It's the same for iPhoto, for what it's worth. The folder for iPhoto is in your Pictures folder. In fact, it's probably just a good idea to make a copy of your entire Home folder as backup. This'll keep a copy of pretty much everything except your apps. :)

    You are not a developer and yet you have managed to get a bootleg copy of Leopard and are going to try and install it.

    How's that?

    Whether you have Leopard or Tiger, it's good to have a backup of your Home folder. :)

    The original threat title indicated that.

    Then his coy reply to my comment about already having Leopard.

    Maybe you are right, but I wouldn't bet on it.

    This is good advice for any OS when you are going to make an upgrade/major change.

    His reply comment said "yeah I WISH" meaning "yeah, I wish" as in... he wishes he had it...

    EDIT:
    And if you have looked around apple.com (I forgot exactly where) you can buy some package, that will include Leopard beta, and like tickets to macworld and more, for like $2k+

    Maybe I misread the intent of his comment. If so, my apologies to all -- especially mac17.

    Maybe you are looking here.

    Anyhow, a developer (used to be one) would never ask a simple question such as this. AFAIK, only developers have beta copies of Leopard at this time.
