"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

1.) Yes and No. Since the Macintosh has no default screen saver, all you have to do is that your screensaver will be executed at startup (a own control panel, ...)
2.) The preferences directory in the system folder are a little bit equivalent to the registry.

3.) There is no standard screen saver so there are no settings.

4.) YES.
