Why doesn't this work for me? I open Terminal and paste <</System/Library/Frameworks/
ScreenSaver.framework/Resources/
ScreenSaverEngine.app/Contents/MacOS/ScreenSaverEngine -background &>> and hit RETURN.
I have a G4 867 running 10.2.
Here is my Terminal window:

Welcome to Darwin!

You didn't remove the line break.
