any advice would be greatly appreciated!
i own a 24 in, 2.16 intel core 2 duo imac, with 2 GB of ram, and a 250 GB HDD,
i wanted to earse and install due to desire for a clean slate of my home PC,
and now when installing ANYTHING (ie: chrome, firefox, vuze, etc) it takes FOREVER to copy into the applications folder!
Did i do something wrong?
Should i go back and do another clean wipe?
is the HDD fried?
i am using my OSX disc ( 10.6.3 )
thank you in advance!

I'm leaving now to go and find myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
