 Mac OS X Power Hound Helpful Hints

"Mac OS X gives you lots of freedom in lots of areas, but it's fairly stern about one: you're not allowed to rename any of the key system folders--Applications, Library, and so on--and you really shouldn't rename the pre-installed folders inside of your Home folder (like Movies, Pictures, Documents, and Music). Although OS X will let you change Music to My Music Collection, bad digital things may happen when your programs go looking for folder names that no longer exist--iTunes will no longer be able to find its library unless you tell it the new location. Other programs may not be so accommodating and will just fail when they can't find the Music directory."
