I just finished downloading the combo 10.5.2 update and something appears to be wrong. When I attempt to open the update I get another window that has the message "Warning: The following disk images failed to mount". I'm pretty much lost on this one. Do I just need to download it again? I saw the update available in the dock earlier as part of the software updates, but heard enough feedback to want to download the combo rather than doing that one. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

One happy switcher!

Likely you need to download it again.

One thought, do you have enough disk space to a) open the file, b) perform the install? No, I don't care for the answer.

Use Software Update in System Preferences and follow it. Suggest choose the Download only option. When completed run Repair Permissions, go to downloads folder and install the update and when finished again run Repair Permissions.

You may find it necessary to disconnect any peripherals apart from keyboard, mouse etc. include printer.
