    Haha, you threw it out. Way to go :p
    Anyway, you're likely going to need to reinstall from your DVD's that came with your system. No big deal, or rather I suppose I could email you a copy of it, not sure if that'll work. If you're using 10.5 I can do that for you.

    Uh.. it's a bad idea to put your email address out in a public forum for a spam-spider to crawl across. So I removed it.

    Just get your installer DVD and use Pacifist to pull the default Preference Panes.

    I guess sometimes you have to spell it out for people to PM you.
