I just created this one-liner bash script that creates symbolic links for all dot-files in your home directory. Note that it attempts to create a directory at ~/Dotfiles: cd ~; mkdir Dotfiles; for f in .*; do ln -s $f Dotfiles/${f:1}; done; rm Dotfiles/DS_Store; Just paste the line into the Terminal and press Enter.

No. The End User License Agreement for 10.6 does not allow for virtualization unless you have purchased the Server version. VMware Fusion (as well as VMware ESXi and VMware Workstation) honors the EULA and does not allow virtualization if the OS X EULA does not allow it.

Hardware defects It is likely that some of the hardware that is needed for the hardware test to run, is defect. My personal experience is that this will most likely be one of your 2 RAM DIMMS. You can safely eject 1 and try the test again (and the same goes for the other). If you run your hardware test from CD/DVD, you can also do this for your HD, and ...

To fix this: Run Keychain Access (found in /Applications/Utilities) click "Keychain Access" in the menu bar at the top and select "Keychain First Aid". Run the repair and then run verify. That should fix it!
