Hi Lucian and All,
Thanks for the info. I'm glad I asked. Now that leads to another question. If I wanted to skip the redundant download and open the image-writer-mac file in Terminal from the larger download Tom G. posted (Sugar-Creation-Kit-ver05.iso) how would I do that? I have copies of that download both on my desktop and burned on a DVD.
P.S. Is there a handy dandy guide to commands for the Mac Terminal anywhere? Sort of an "Idiot's Guide to the Mac Terminal" or "The Mac Terminal for Dummies?"
