I know in Windows, if you download an update, chances are it makes the computer worse off. So is 10.3.5 recommended by the people of this forum?

Well, I started with 10.3 and regularly updated it, ending up at 10.3.5. Never had a problem related to system updates yet...

It's not a Window box and generally Mac OS patches have less holes then window equivalents. 10.3.5 runs and updates without a glitch.

Well, actually, believe it or not, I may be experiencing some problems, but maybe these only apply to G3s. When 10.3.4 first came out, my father and I downloaded it. I think my computer may have gotten slightly slower, and his definitely did, since I could no longer play Gameboy Advance games on VisualBoy Advance on his computer at top speed. Before the update, it was at top speed, and I think that's what caused it. When I heard that the release of 10.3.5 was a speed update, I was happy, but it's not any faster. My father downloaded it too, and the games still don't run at top speed. So, on my experiences on a G3 (one with 500 MHz and 384 MB of RAM, and the other with 700 MHz and 256 MB of RAM), these minor updates seem to make the computer slower. But I'd still recommend it. Apple recommends it to all users of Panther. I'm sure it has updates that are good, and of course eventually lots of programs will only be able to run on 10.3.5. So, it is best to progress further, even though there are negative consequences.

10.3.5 is running nicely on both my iBook G3 900 and my Beige G3 AIO 300. No problems at all.

My HP scanjet (scanner) doesn't work with 10.3.5 - Unfortunatly I bought the Mac with 10.3.5 and can't go back, so I'm stuck with a non-functioning scanner.

Apart from that, everything else is happy.

Did you test the scanner using an earlier version of OS X to confirm that it is the .5 update that's the problem?

I'll wait for more comments on G3 users. I have a HP printer. Anyone had any conflicts with HP printers/scanners? I mean for any version for OS X? Did yours work fine in one version and in others it didn't? I have heard alot of trouble with HP printers with Macs, thats all.

Try running repair permissions: close all apps and log totally off. Log on, go in Finder, Applications. Utilities, Disk Utility. After the message -getting disk information- select volume (below the hard drive name -upper left corner). Just highlight it. Now look to the lower two things are there near the middle, verify permissions, repair permissions

Have you tried a program called VueScan? It should support your scanner but I'm afraid its not free. Its available at http://www.hamrick.com/ for about $60. And no, I don't work for them... lol.
