1 Ghz 17" Albook

Complete install of Panther last night (no upgrade).

Shortly after using finder the first time to connect to the local networks (workgroups), the actual name "Networks" (on the very left of finder, near the local drive and the .mac account) changed to a "?". It doesn't seem to be able to be edited.

(Sorry, I'm at work now so can't post a screenshot)

Anyone else see this or know what causes this?

I got this too. I have no idea why. It went away after a while (maybe a login-logout fixed it?).

Hmm...glad to hear things eventually worked out.

A logout didn't clear anything up for me, but this morning, I shut down and will find out what a restart does later this afternoon.

A restart seems to have cleared this up.
