I have a G3 800mhz iBook with 640mb Ram. It was purchased in November from Apple. Since I got it, I upgraded it to Panther but my bootup times are SOOOO long. It takes about 1.5min to get to the login screen and when I login I get a screen with my wallpaper on it, and the spinning beachball of death just sits there for 4 to 5 min before I finally get the dock and menu bar. I ran the fix that was supposed to speed up the bootup time but that didn't work at all. I also checked to see what was starting at startup and I removed all the things that were starting by default (like Tomcat and Apache) but still no luck. Any ideas? It's not a terribly difficult problem since I usually just leave it on all the time but it is annoying when I have to reboot for an update or if I want to take it somehwere with me.
