    Give me some help here, getting after it with the newb questions. I just got some programs on to the new MBP and now I have some stray .dmg files on the desktop and being the neat freak that I am, I want my desktop clean. What do you guys recommend as the best way to archive these sons of bitches and if you could elaborate how the disk image, etc works for Mac...?

    well first, are you keeping the disk image? once you copy the application to tghe Applications folder, you can just throw the disk image's out (after ejecting the disk of course) but if you plan on saving them, then just create a folder and keep them in there?

    I normally delete all my dmg's (which I always kick myself in the ass for). If you need to need to keep them just make a folder or put them on an external HD .

    i dont feel the need to keep them so i delete them. just burn them to a RW disc if you want to keep them

    I created a Setup Files folder in my Home directory where I put all setup files/disk images for programs I like or want. everything else gets deleted
