    Ok, so this isn't exactly a problem, but it's been perplexing me. Ok so in my HD folder, there is one library. then when i click on my little "house", my user file, there is another library, that is different from the first one. any idea what the second one is? thanks

    Well, one Library contains resources for all your users. The other Library contains resources only pertaining to you.

    you're supposed to have two.

    the one in your Home Folder is your User Library. only settings/apps etc that are specific to your user go there. the other one is basically the 'global' library.
