Assuming I deleted some of the apps that came with the system (like iPhoto or iMovie), could I reinstall them by simply copying them back from another machine? Also, would Software Update update them anyway and install new versions every now and then? -- Andrew J. Brehm Fan of Woody Allen PowerPC User Supporter of Pepperoni Pizza...

    Yes, to both, usually. However, an app like Safari updates other
    things, too, so I suggest just reinstalling from the .PKG or .DMG from
    which you got the software to begin with just to be sure you always
    get everything. Disk 2 of your 10.2 release has some of that
    software; Apple's WWW site has the rest. Burn the .DMGs or .PKGs to
    CDR and you're all set.

    Yes you could, this is the nature of the OS X packaged application
    system - an application is entirely self contained, you don't need
    support files spread all over the place.

    Software update would certainly ask you if you wanted them, but unless
    you ticked the install box it wouldn't install them.

    Sometimes. Safari, for example, has other dependencies.
