When you set up the network you have a chance to set a name. I am forgetting when/how, but it will happen at the point you also set a password.

I keep my dock on the right-hand side. At the bottom (the default) it drives me nuts. I also make the icons small, and do not let them bobble at me all the time. Matter of personal preference, but nice to have these choices.

Several. TidBits has a lively forum, mail-list, and e-books on all aspects of the Mac. It is especially useful for Leopard, as print materials have been late appearing.

MacInTouch has news and discussion of everything Mac-ish, with links to important updates. I check in there every day.

And David Pogue’s Missing Manual for Leopard has recently been published (in print); I find that to be an essential reference.

All of these have advice on setting up Windows on your new Mac. There are several approaches, each with pros and cons (of course!). You can let me know what you decide. I have a copy of Windows XT but haven’t got to the point of installing that myself.
