Is it possible to do a 'selective restore' to just restore network setting (i.e., a couple of VPN setups)? After having problems with the 10.5.6 upgrade, I ended up doing an 'archive & install' and then a 'combo update' which solved the update problem and then I was able to bring everything back (address book, safari, ms office, etc, etc) but I lost my vpn settings. I have the previous system files as well as Time Machine backups but I can't figure out which preferences files contain my old network settings. Can anyone give some guidance here? Thnx.
