Sometimes when I restart my ibook it looks like the system is booting two times. When I get to the login screen and I login, in the back round I can still see it booting up, Weird huh. Does anyone know what this is and why and how it happens. THanks

Do you have classic mode set to launch at startup? That looks zactly like OS 9 launching, which it is, kinda.
