    Yes, and when I saw that, for a minute, I thought Apple snuck a Windows feature into the update!

    Just updated my Powerbook G4. Fastest update of all Tiger updates. Took about two minutes from the time I hit RESTART until I was back online. No issues yet but it's only been about three minutes.

    devast8or - not sure what to tell your buddy. Has he got it working yet?

    Specs:
    2 x 3.0GHz Quad-Core, 6GB OS X 10.6.8 | 15in MacBook Pro 2.2GHz OS X 10.6.8 | 64GB iPad 2 WiFi
    Cool
    I would get the Mac OS X 10.4.8 Combo Update either the PPC or Intel and re-apply the update.

    I alway use the combo update, when I update. I also wait about a week, to see if there are any problems.
