I've been sent LOADS of .AVI files to watch but I've tried so many applications to do so on my OS 10.3.9 or even something to convert them to .MOV files. Does anyone have any suggestions as I would be SO grateful.

yup, VLC is great
if you want to use quicktime, you can download Perian, which enables quicktime to play more formats

here's a link:

Then again 10.3 might want an older version of VLC - better still upgrade to Tiger
