    On my powermac g4 450 MHz it lagged up everything unbearably. It is cool but not that cool. Go to www.versiontracker.com/macosx/ and search for 'background screen saver' or something along those lines.

    That's because you were using some wimpy utility. You need to use the terminal trick I posted above, that will enable it to share processing power.

    Hit command shift G in the finder then type in this path: /Users/yourusername/Library/Screen Savers/ and drag the .saver file into that folder. Then go to system prefs and open the screen effects panel and it should be there.
