You might have some problems with your HD, did you run disk utilities on it? Disk warrior?<br><br>You didn't mention what mac you have. <br><br>For about $120 there's two good options, (think of it as an investment!): <br><br>an external FW/USB2 80 gb drive would do the trick, clone your existing drive to it, then zero the boot drive and install Tiger. <br><br>or even better if you have a PowerMac to install a 2nd internal drive, like a 37gb 10000rpm Raptor, to use as boot drive to install Tiger. Keep your files on your existing drive and use it for archive.

I have other internal drives that have plenty of space. If I install Tiger on one of those, does my user home directory stay at the original location? Will all my apps still run from their original location or do I need to install them again?<br><br>--<br>http://www.stevenkimband.com/
Using the other internal drive: zero that drive, install Tiger on it and set is as the start up disk, your previous Panther drive should remain untouched as a backup. Tiger install will ask you to find a previous system to grab preferences, addresses... You'll need to re-install apps and fonts onto the new Tiger drive. <br><br><br>read this and this about cloning your existing drive to another as a bootable drive before installing fresh. The G5 Support forum on the link is a good one to know.
That's right...it is the computer colonic. <br><br>People pooh-pooh the idea...but it is the sure-fire way to solve your software problem 100% of the time. Back up that home directory and zero that sucker!<br><br>
That's right. <br><br>I just don't have the desire to run all these doo-dad shareware and freeware apps to clean my cache, delete my logs, fix my files and other assorted Unix hackery. <br><br>Now granted...some people enjoy the fiddling, so to each their own. <br><br>
