Getting access to the hidden directories in the Finder System
Some of the UNIX stuff in Mac OS X cannot be accessed easily trough the Finder (unless you want to type Pathnames all the time. However, there is a simple workaround using links (or aliases) to those folders and place them in Favorites or one of its subfolders.

This way you can more easily browse and edit system settings, while not being bothered by seing _all_ invisibly files all the time (as you can set it up in TinkerTool).

[Editor: To create the aliases in the Finder, use the Go -> Go to Folder menu item, and type the full path name. Once the folder opens in the finder, simply command-option drag it to the Favorites folder to create a reusable alias.]

Hope this helps, iSee
