    Specs:
    MacBook black, Intel C2D 2GHz, 2GB RAM, 320GB WD Scorpio HD
    Non-OSX applications
    If I reinstall OSX using the installation disk, will I lose the other applications that I have downloaded? How about my saved files? Thanks ...

    Choose the Archive and Install option for reinstalling the OS.

    It should save your 3rd party apps and personal files: it will keep the older system in a folder called Previous System: before trashing it, make sure there's nothing in there you still need.
