I cannot for the life of me figure out WTF is going on. Yesterday my entire school files directory *disappeared*. In a panic, I downloaded recovery software (thinking I had deleted it somehow) which found absolutely nothing. Then, out of nowhere, Finder was able to locate the folder again. I had a shortcut in my Finder bar previously, and it had disappeared when the directory disappeared. So, when I "discovered" it again, I drug it over to the bar again. Now, this morning, it's gone again. Finder cannot locate it at all. I'm not worried about the data because I have a good backup at home, but WTF is going on? Time to upgrade to Leopard?? If there are details about my setup that would be helpful, I'll do what I can.
