- Mounting hard drives that belong to a windows machine. I can't get it to automount. I followed the steps they provided in the help doc which were clear and simple to follow. It just didn't work. Mounting a drive was simple enought though. I couldn't mount to my win2K machine though. I think because it doesn't have a 'guest' account. Can't see how I can connect to these machines as an existing account though. Still struggling here. ;)

- Can't check in source using cvs with a mounted drive on windows. Mind you this may be permissions on the windows machines but I couldn't figure it out.

- The help viewer is lousy with some documents. E.G. the Metrowerks CodeWarrior help docs. These docs often get stuck on the first help doc page and no matter what you do it just doesn't want to change to a link you've clicked. Thankfully the doc is PDF and HTML based so I end up using IE or Safari. Still not good though. No search options with the browsers.
