    Yup, my OS hard drive failed in the MDD tonight. It's the original Hitachi Deathstar... It's been making the awkward click every once in while, and now it's dead. Made the klink-klink sound and now it won't even boot off of it. Dang. Good thing I have a second one installed with OS 9 on it.

    That's happened with my 15-inch 1.5 GHz PowerBook G4 once. But I had to buy a new hard drive for it, then open the PowerBook myself and put the hard drive in. It worked perfectly.

    Yeah, I just put the OS 9 drive on the master plug of the ribbon, wiped it and reinstalled Leopard. I didn't use OS 9 anyways on it... I use my 333MHz Lombard PB for OS 9 stuff.
