Let's just say, one thing led to another and I ended up doing a whole wipe, zero, OS X reinstall of my 17" PB. (with a backup, which failed me --- stupid ipod dropping in the middle of the xtar session!) But luckily, I had a copy of my home directory in my ipod under trashes, so I was able to salvage that. It ran happily, and the first thing I did was run software update to put it to 10.2.6. I rebooted, and logged in --- but now I'm apparently stuck in the log-in process. The aqua-bar moves and moves, but nothing happens. What should I do? I'm thinking of getting either Jag or Panther on my iPod again, and booting from there to just rescue the /Documents folder of my home directory... any tips?
