    Somewhere there is an article on how to change pic and text in about this mac window.

    Did you totally miss what I just posted, piwozniak? :confused:

    Replace that file. Reboot (might change on a logout instead). Done.

    No i did not.

    By default you don't have permission to access:


    so either you do it through terminal, os9, or root user.

    osxhints gives you command so you just copy/paste command in terminal window. I don't know how confortable TigerWoods99 is with unix so i assumed this would be aesier.

    Boy oh boy...
