Cut/Paste not working

I am using a new G5 with the Intel chip. My cut/paste is grayed out. When I select a file that I want to move and not copy, it won't let me. Anyone know what's going on? Thanks.

OSX isn't windows - it won't let the finder do a 'cut' and a paste - merely a copy.
Drag and drop will 'move' it.

There are third party utilities that give a finder replacement that feel more 'windows' like in this respect.

Side note: it's an INTEL mac....a G5 is the 5 generation Motorola Power PC processor. I'm assuming you have a MacPro (big steel tower.)
