Firts, my setup. G5. Just installed Leopard (retail version) on a brand new Seagate Barracuda 320gb (oem disc failed). BTW, this new Seagate is my only hard drive and I'm only using about 31gbof the 298 showing available(so much for a 320gb drive eh?). I've tried running Disk Utility to "verify permissions" and get the message "less than a minute remaining" with the blue bar sitting at 20% or so. I've let it run for about 10 minutes and nothing. Should I let it run longer? Anyone else have this happen to them? Ideas? Thanks in advance.
