i have been trying to update to 10.2.8, but software update wouldn't work. i finally got 10.2.5 downloaded from apple (downloaded 10.2.8 update but it wouldn't work). while installing the 10.2.5 update the "you need to restart you computer" screen came up so, i held the power button down until it went off and then turned the computer back on. now the computer won't boot past the grey screen with the apple in the middle. if anybody has any ideas as to what the problem would be please help!!!!!!!

well m8 kinda sounds like you had a kernel panic during installation. this leaves your machine in a very vulnerable and shaky state.
if i were you i would find my original install discs, choose to archive and install the OS fresh, and then go back and get any preferences you must have from the archived system.
Usually it would be a bad idea to try to go ahead using or fixing an installation that has experienced a panic during install. even if u manage to repair it... who knows what might happen at some unforseen random time... like when you are writing a paper, paying a bill, or video conferencing with that sexy college girl down the street and shes just about to ..... ok.. got caried away.
anyhow.. you get the idea.
