i have had my mac, running on os x 4.11, for almost 5 years now and until now it worked fine. recently i have had problems with speed and safari and was told sometimes reinstalling os x can help.

cd 1 installed fine with no problems. but when i insert cd 2 it explains there were errors installing software and to please try installing again. this message comes up immediatly.

i was wondering if someone could help me resolve this problem or simple how to abandon it and start from scratch?

You might want to take a good look at your disk set. It sounds like disk 2 may be dirty or scratched and can't be read. There is also a possibility that it's your optical drive that's acting up. Try reinstalling again.

Some advice that you may have heard before: If something is working OK, don't try to fix it. Reinstalling the operating system can lead to more problems as you found out.

Regards.

Yeah. Take an incremental approach. Try the simple stuff first!
