    I am trying to install OS X Tiger on a 600MHz G3 iMac (Grey). I have the cd version and when I get to the end of the install, it says optimizing, and it never finishes.

    I changed the HD to a 200GB Seagate 7200RPM unit and formatted it to 128GB (max supported) and did the install.

    Help please..thx!
