Show Hidden Files in Mac OS X Finder

Open a Terminal windows and type:
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
The first line changes the setting in Finder. The second line closes all open Finder windows, so that Finder will restart with the new configuration the next time you open a new window.
