Thanks for the offer. No problem, I can wait until the next version  
of BibDesk. No need to risk having two importers for the same UTI on  
disk afterwards! I had thought the importer might be now a part of  
BibDesk, and had tried "mdimport -L" just to be sure, with BibDesk  
installed, but with no luck.

Actually I was just trying to replicate on my "old" PowerMac G4 my  
current work environment (a PowerBook G4), so that the PowerBook  
could be shipped to AppleCare for repair (AirPort card and/or antenna  
replacement). Quite a challenge given the PM hard drive is 30 GB, and  
the PB hard drive 60 GB! I had been using the PM only for backup for  
the last 2 years, leaving it happily at Jaguar. But with the PB now  
in Tiger, with its new incompatible email format, I have been  
spending the last 1.5 days switching the PM to Tiger and reinstalling/ 
updating all software accordingly, to mirror the PB setup.
