    For the past 3 weeks a few days after i installed jag my G4 has been SUPER slow. I get the spining lolypop on everything. It takes forever to even close windows. Starting up takes almost 5 min. Same with sleeping and shuting down. Is there any way i can fix this? Thanks.

    did you reformat before you installed? i'm not sure, but that may be why. however, don't trust me, i don't even have a mac:)

    Boot from your OSX.2 install CD, open up the disk utility and run the fix permissions util, apparently lots of people experianced a slowdown after upgrading to jag, but doing this fixed it. Good luck. :)
