    I got a Mac Mini today with OS X Leopard. It's working nice, but because I've never worked with that OS, I got 2 questions:

    1. How do I create and save screenshots? There doesn't seem to be a PrintScreen button on the keyboard.
    2. How do I set the keyboard layout to US International, so that I can put accents on letters like the e, a, o and i?

    <Shift> + <Apple> + <3> and you probably "paste" into your chosen graphics program & save as normal
    does this help ?

    np it was an easy find, personally, i've never even seen a mac
    will try again!

    Edit: i'd have thought i'd be on system preferences panel (equivalent to control panel)

    I solved it:

    To get letters like á and é, I just press Option+e and then the corresponding letter.
    To get the ë, ä, ö and ï, I just press Option+u and then the corresponding letter.

    I found that information here.

    There won't be much to fix though. In normal operation, everything works fine. But if it should crash, then there is nothing to do about it, except losing your money on a new Mac.
