    so like the title states, i need to install front row WITHOUT having to redo the install but can't figure this out. i tried to install it via the package file on my mac (doesnt work), tried to install it via the dvd (didnt seem to work either). tried to use something like pacifist to extract the pkg file but that didnt work either. so how do i do this? thanks

    When you used Pacifist, what response did you get? It should work, so did you get any dialogue boxes with error messages? :)

    I assume that's when you use the installer that's bundled with the disc, but what about Pacifist? It should bypass this. :)

    nope this is what happens when i use pacifist. it says file already exists, gives me some dialogue and gives me the options: stop extraction, leave alone, replace

    after which i choose either leave alone or replace it says: bundle already exists, dialoge then gives me the options stop installation, leave alone, replace, update

    Where are you extracting to? Have you tried extracting to a different folder? :)
