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?

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.
