By saying "not enough memory" do you mean not enough hard drive storage space ("memory" is a term used when talking about a computer's ram)?

If so...yes there is a process...get rid of the junk & stuff you don't access on a regular basis...or off-load it onto an external drive of some sort. This includes music, movies/videos, photos, old MS Office files, etc.

And after removing junk and stuff run Onyx. Best utility for Mac OS X and it is free!

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
