How to access your idisk Network
Accessing your idisk (given to you when you sign up for itools) is quite easy under OS X.

When in the finder, select Connect to Server under the Go menu (or just press command-K). When the dialog box appears, make sure the drop-down menu says AFP Servers, and then type idisk.mac.com in the URL entry box.

A username/password dialog box should appear. Enter your mac.com username and password, and your idisk should mount on the desktop. Once it's mounted, you can make an alias to it, and simply double-click it in the future.

Apple has added a new "Software" folder to everyone's idisk which contains a selection of OS X software disk images. To use, simply drag the image you want onto a local volume and it will download. There's a large number of programs listed, and I imagine this folder will get much more active once OS X 1.0 ships. Quite cool, and this alone probably makes it worth getting a (free) itools account.

Thanks to 'James' for submitting the idisk question!

BTW: There's nothing stopping you from opening your iDisk using conventional means under OSX: open IE and go to http://apple.com/ itools/. This isn't as direct, but is more user friendly. And more importantly, if you can't login for whatever reason, you'll get more useful error messages. - Scott
