B. Multiple User Accounts in Mac OS 9

Appendix B. Multiple User Accounts in Mac OS 9

Mac OS 9 was the first version of the Mac OS to support Multiple User accounts: the tidy and secure system in which every account holder who logs onto a computer gets his own distinct version of files, folders, settings, and so on.

Unlike the File Sharing accounts you learned about back in Chapter 6, Multiple User accounts don’t have any influence over what happens when visitors tap into a Mac from across the network. Multiple User accounts only control what happens when different people log on, in person, to the same computer. (Geeks call that local access, versus the remote access that takes place when you log on from across the network.) Still, these Multiple User accounts are useful to know about, and this Appendix will give you a quick introduction to these kinds of accounts in Mac OS 9.
