Hello all, I'm a long time Mac user, first time X user. I bought an iMac DV 400 that came with Jaguar installed and 320 Megs of ram. I can not seem to keep any preferences I make on the machine after logging off or shutting down the machine. My Dock loses the setting for magnification and size, and the Mail app keeps asking me to input my mail data to create a mailbox. I'm at my wits end and after trying quite a few things and looking on the web decided to join this list. Can anyone shine a light on my problem, I just know its a newbie mistake.
