Hi,
Yesterday, I installed iscroll on my Aluminum Powerbook 15" 1.25ghz ...
I clicked reboot when prompted and since have not been able to get the powerbook to boot past the grey apple boot screen without a kernel panic. I tried resetting the PRAM as well as booting in to single user mode and doing fsck -fy .... both of which did not fix the kernel panic problem. I don't have apple care or diskwarrior, so I was wondering if you guys could give me some advice on other things to try for a fix!

Thanks,
CM

Have you tried to boot from an install disk? Hold C down while booting up with the disk in the drive.

Or, can you access the Powerbook's drive from another computer? Connect the two via Firewire, and reboot the Powerbook while holding down the T key. A firewire symbol will come up on the Powerbook, and you will be able to see its drive from the connected computer via a Finder network connection.

Also, search the Mac Basics and Help part of these forums for more tips.
