First, change the "Music folder location:" to your a folder in your External HD: iTunes -> Preferences -> Advanced

Then make sure you tick the two options directly underneath it, viz., "Keep iTunes …" and "Copy files to…".

After OKing, go to the Advanced menu and select "Consolidate Library…".

You can delete the old library folders after that.
Thank you very much for your help once again.

I've a question....

I know that windows programs can run in windows using either boot camp/ paralles.

However, i came to realise that some of the configurations are still not up to standard when running programs

in windows. (I'm using parallels to install the Windows XP SP2 OS)

Eg. Games cannot be played with full resolution in windows.

Anyone have the slightest idea how do i fix the problem? Thx a lot.

What game are you trying to play?
When using parallels, most of the hardware is virtualised (most importantly is your graphics card) hence your game may not run properly. I suggest you use bootcamp for playing games instead.

Note that under bootcamp and for many of the later games, you may need to update your windows graphics drivers.
If you update your drivers using the official releases from nvidia, it will fail as the laptop cards are usually "blocked".
The workaround is to download the drivers with modified INF files from www.laptopvideo2go.com (while laptopvideo2go provides a great service, this is still the unofficial route so you install these drivers at your own risk)

PS: I know this sounds mightily obvious but I'm anticipating this question:
Q: Does the updated graphics card drivers from lv2go work in OS X as well?
A: No. These drivers are windows drivers only. Your OS X drivers are taken care of by Apple's own updates.

1) No. The Santa Rosa chipset limits the memory bus to 667Mhz - it's a hardware limitation in place by Intel.
2) The 2nd disc is part of the installation process - it contains the extra applications.
3) No. Discs are locked to device classes. You can't even use an older/newer-generation MacBook's restore disc on your MacBook.

Games such as FF8 and oso Devil May Cry 4 cant be run in windows using parallels properly. Esp. DMC 4 it said sumthing about unsupported pixel shader etc. Thx for the information though...i'l try to use bootcmp to try out instead thx.

Yah, the current beta isn't very good but it doesn't crash every sites I visit!

Anyhow I have since reverted to the stable release, version 9.0.124.0

Just go download and install it over the beta version.

I hope that works for you.

Otherwise, go to Firefox 3's -> Tools -> Add-ons -> Plugins, and disable Shockwave Flash. If FF3 still crash after that, it's not Flash's fault leow.

Sometimes if you install Flash Player or Adobe Flash in your system to work with Flash it can mess up the plugin settings.

Happened to me when i was on Tiger with Macromedia Flash installed in Applications for assignment (Adobe Flash browser plugin installed). Everytime go to websites with flash the browser will kaput and behave wonky.
