OK this is probably the dumbest question I've ever asked but how do I install a screensaver onto my Mac? (OSX Jaguar)
The beaches just don't cut it for me. Anymore


Also is their anyway to get a new "effects"  in iTunes. Need something new!
Thanks!

Screen savers go into /Library/Screen Savers/

For additional iTune plugin try searching versiontracker.com to find plugins like G-Force:

Or you could try WhiteCap as well.

Both G-Force and WhiteCap are available at http://www.55ware.com. I reccomend d/l-ing both.
Enjoy!

Although I never use screensavers (I've been using EnergyStar monitor off since 1996)
I suggest you download the following :
Euphoria,
AbstractMotion
Fluid,
Hotel Magritte
PlasmaTunnel
SnowSaver
Life

I downloaded a few out of bordom once and those ones were the best I found. Just search those in VersionTracker. Marine Aquarium 2.0 is cool but I'm not about to pay $20 for a screensaver which I'd never use. Its really impressive tho', think AfterDark Fish except really damn good.

Fireflies and SolarWinds are 2 screensavers that are definitely worth checking out. You can download them from the same site as where you get Euphoria from. You can also find them both on Apple's Mac OS X Downloads page.

Oh, and don't forget everyone's favourite Matrix code themed screensaver, Red Pill!
