    Many of the icons come from Iconfactory.com. That is where I got most of mine.8)

    It works this way on all files, folders, and drives.



    Select it in the Finder.

    Get Info.

    Click the icon in the info window.

    Paste on any graphic.

    Xicons.com or InterfaceLIFT would be an obvious choice. several thousand icons for Mac OS X. new icons posted almost daily



    read the InterfaceLIFT FAQ about macintosh icons for info about how to use them.

    www.resexcellence.com has a great icon and desktop resource (and hacks and konfab and...)

    www.iconfactory.com

    www.mandolux.com is THE place for desktops

    www.xicons.com is great for icons as well.



    check out the links from Icon Factory for more wild artist icon homepages.

    there's also a CM on VT that makes changing the icons really simple, i forgot what it was called, oh well, search for icon CM, or CM, or CMM or something on VT, you're sure to find it!

    Thanks Everyone. MY desktop looks crazy now. I have these G5 inspired drives which are awesome!



    Sorry for the stupid question but i havent been using a mac for 4 years till recently so im a little slow using OSX but im getting the hang of it.



    The FCP and DVD-SP learning curve is whats killing me. But i have found that apple has a real basic tutorial page on their website in quicktime thats awesome for basic stuff.



    Anyways thanks!
