    os not installing.
    sorry if its in the wrong place, my ibook g4 recently froze and wouldnt boot up again so i tried reinstalling the os, (10.5) but every time i try to it fails just before it finishes. it also takes about 40 minutes just to verify the os disc, so im not sure if the disc drive and hard drive are screwed.

    any ideas?

    - Did you have OS 10.5 on this iBook before?
    - What is the cpu speed of you're iBook?
    - What color is the install disk you're using (gray or black)?
    - If a gray disk...did this disk come with your iBook when you originally bought it?
