    I installed Suse 10 on a few days ago and so far I'm really liking it. I have a few newbie questions that im sure some people in here can answer.

    #1. How do i make my desktop look like the macosx desktop? Im especially interested in the menu bar on the bottom. An example of what im talking about can be found here:

    #2. How do i install a weather app similar to the one on the desktop i posted above?

    #3. What media player can i get for suse 10 that will play AVI and MPEG movies? Will the suse 9.1 mplayer work with suse 10?

    #4. Where can i find codecs to play commercial DVDs with linux?


    Thanks in advance for the help.
