I dont really suppose it would be right of me to ask some one to answere all the questions I plan to list below. But if some one would be so kind as to Tell me where I can find such answeres I will be happy to look myself.
I googled Mac Tweaks and came up with limited resource other then a web forum <you guys> that had a set of people answering questions. To me this was the best I could find. From the posts I have read I see you take pride in helping others understand and fix there problems.
Well mine is simple.
I have been a PC user for well we wont go back that far lets just say windows 3.1 was neat when it came out.
About 4 months ago I came accross a good deal on a g4 powerbook. <free>
Not a bad little notebook! Matter of fact this post is the first time I have used my PC in a month...
Now what I am trying to find is how to's:...
How do I format <Providing i needed to> the Hard drive on a mac, with OSX Panther I think? 10.3.9 version...
This used notebook came to me freashly formated I loaded the OS onto it no problem. Although I dont know how to <or should I say I didnt pay enough mind to it> create more then one parition.
So I plan on reformating and creating 2 partitions. One for data back up as I have always done with PC.
Now my next question I feel rather stupid for not being able to find online.
What are some basic key commands I mean such as CMD+? and also how to boot in firewire mode. I managed to find that booting from cd was holding down the C key as the system started.
Clean up... Yeah Caches etc... What do I do to clean this thing up in the 4 months I have had it I have only been able to clean Safari up. Now it seems to run a lot slower. I am sure its cluttered up or somthing. So what are some tips on keeping my note book running smoother?
Heck with PC there was all kinds of things i could do to speed it up.
Ok last one. Back ups. I recently bought a new External LaCIE 80 GB HD It came with software to back up mac. So I made a back up with this software SilverKeeper1.1.2 And saved it right on my desktop. Now I pluged my External HD in firewire and went to move the back up folder to my HD and I couldnt copy it all... After some research I found that moving the Mac format back up to a PC formated drive could cause problems. So what I want to know, and I am new to this. Is can I make 2 partitions on this Drive and use one for mac data per say back ups and the other for my PC junk? Is that possible..
