I am running 10.4.1 on my G4 iMac, and wanted to set up a couple unrestricted accounts for me and the little lady. I found it easy to create the additional admin user and enabled fast user switch and all, but once in the "new" user account, I could not find where to access any of the programs I had installed on my "old" account, like Office and other third party apps. Am I just completely missing something obvious?? Thanks for the help.
waiting this long for a new 15 will drive

1) you're better off having just one admin. You don't have to have your wife as a restricted user though.

Applications should be in applications folder. Other items in your personal folder aren't accessible by the other user unless they're in shared (for example, if you want to share the iTunes music folder).
