    my first post. i have duel G5...running panther...

    my problem...among many....is the network browsing slow in OSX? i click on a fileserver...and it seems like it takes forever to read the file list. is this a panther isssue...or a slow fileserver issue?

    on a side note....my duel G5 goes dark sometimes...the screen goes dead....cant wake up....have to reboot...the hard drive revs in an ackward sound...and then boots...is this a hard drive issue?

    ...and flash mx 04 crashes all the time :(

    thanks for any replies gang.

    I guess it would depend on the network is it ethernet or wireless? Also what kind of fileserver? SMB on windows? Or apple fileshare? Also what is your idea of slow. I know mine a g4 600mhz powerbook takes about 30 seconds to a minute to propogate a list of the servers if on wireless once its connected to a fileserver it seems pretty fast. But again it may depend on your network and alot on network traffic.

    Just a side idea

    How much ram are you running and did the ram come with the G5 or was it generic or namebrand? That could cause some issues running as fast a frontside bus as those do.
