    i have a mac power pc g4. My mac meets all the reyquirements to run leopard from what I read. Well I pop in leopard it shows up and I double click the install icon. The huge x appears, tells me to click and the instillation will start at the restart. So the first few times plain and simple nothing would happen. Then after that I restarted and for a few secs the apple icon appears and now a greyish screen appears with a statement in different languages;"you need to restart your computer...." happens every time. Please help.

    Do you have any third party RAM installed or expansion cards?

    Have you tried just booting off of the Leopard DVD by holding the 'C' key down after the boot tone?
