    Here's the news in brief:

    ...My Pismo's out of memory...

    I upgraded to MacOSX 10.2 at the start of the week (which is working beautifully). However, when I tried to download the 10.2.6 upgrade yesterday I found that it couldn't download due to a lack of memory.

    Now, having started investigating harddrive upgrades, I've become a little overwhelmed at the vast range availble.

    What I would love to know, though, is if anyone has any particular suggestions for HDD upgrades (Toshiba, Fujistu, etc), any specifications I should be particularly looking for, and your advice on whether I should be getting this replacement done professionally or whether its safe to replace a hard drive myself. I'm looking for between 40-60Gb, because I do video editing, etc, etc. Also, if this should be done by a Pro, any recommendations in the London (UK) area?

    Note: I've looked on the Apple Supprt website, and searched the MR archive, and can't find any info on this.

    I thank you all in advance, as usual.

    Many thanks for the document m'lady. That'll help me when I have to install my new 40Gig IBM travelstar HDD which I bought today.

    Take care.
