    I have my 12" powerbook on an iCurve next to my 18" monitor. I love this setup but I really wish the text naviagation bar was on the larger monitor instead of being on the smaller 12" screen. Is there anyway that I can switch the side of the menu bar to the larger screen? Also, if that is possible would I be able to move the position of the dock to the right bottom screen rather than the horizontal farright side? Anyone who lends advice, thanks ahead of time!

    I think you can just drag the display icon to the other monitor.

    in system preferences, click displays. im not on my home computer so I don't know exactly what it says but you are looking for a layout tab or something to that degree. There should be two boxes with one having a red line in it. that one is your main screen. just make the other box the main screen.
