      Thanks, John. I don't remember how or why the root level HD got to be
      UNIX. However, I'd be happy to change it. How do I do that? I opened
      SheepShaverGUI, but didn't see anything there that would set a new
      "transfer folder".

      I find two folders: "Desktop Folder" and "Desktop" at the root level
      directory of my HD. When in SheepShaver, with UNIX open, I see the
      same two folders. In OS X. one continues to be called "Desktop" and
      one is called "Desktop Folder". The "Desktop Folder" is called
      "Desktop (Mac OS 9)" in the UNIX folder in SheepShaver. In the
      "Desktop (Mac OS 9)" folder are two aliases that I have created: one
      to my home folder and another to a folder inside of my home folder.
      Is this "Desktop Folder" the transfer folder?

      Thank in advance for any further assistance, particularly with
      reference to the preferred transfer folder.
