comment Printing to PDFCreator from Crystal Reports embedded in a Visual Basic Program
Thanks, but I have tried to set these options for autosave. It is just that after I do, when I tell the report to print itself, the dialog boxes for PDFCreator come up, completely ignoring the settings.

Maybe I posted this to the wrong list. I think I thought I was in stack overflow when I posted.

comment Boot problems - Mac OS X not booting
@dtlussier: Of course if you don't care about the data on the disk, you could always reformat it and start from scratch to see if that takes care of it. I've had some systems that had quirky boot characteristics, and I tried to see if I could fix them and make them boot faster. When I finally tried to reformat the drive and install the OS fresh, that is when I got the definite error messages telling me the drive was toast.

comment Boot problems - Mac OS X not booting
I hate to sound like a pessimist, but once you start seeing these kinds of errors, you have to realize that there is a cause - which is either a software event that caused things to become corrupted (possible but no the highest likelyhood) or a hardware failure of the disk. I think that this point, the best thing to do is to get a replacement hard drive to get the system working again, then then see what you can do to recover important data from the drive. Trying to use any disk utility tools to recover the drive as a boot drive will quite likely result in definite lost of data later on.

comment What happens if I set my shell to be an invalid program and restart?
It may not give you an error, it may just act like have "/bin/false" as a shell, which effectively disables interactive (shell based) login

Basically, if your shell is invalid it will not be able to log you in. Or rather you will log in (authenticate) and immediatedly log you out because the shell won't run.

comment WD My Passport detected but not assigned a drive letter
Can I assume that there is no problem with the file system on the disk? And that you can mount this drive other places and are able to ready it? Mounting a foreign file system (such as might be used for a Mac or for Linux) will result in the hardware being recognized but no drive letter. But I've had situations with an NTFS file system not cleanly unmounted elsewhere needed attention if I try to mount it under Win 7.
