If I open System Preferences and go to Start Up Disc, there are 2 icons.


One is the hard drive icon on my Desktop (Mac OS X,10.5.8 on Rosebud).


The other hard drive icon is "Network Startup" and it has what looks like a dark grey circle with a white question mark on it.


I have selected Rosebud. I want to know why there is a "?" on the "Network Startup" icon.




Thanks in advance.

iBook, Mac OS X (10.5.8), 1.2 GHz PPC G4 and 1.25GB
