    I have a powermac G4 that went south so I wiped the hard drive and tried to reinstall panther 10.3.9. on it using the install CDs but every time it says " there were errors installing the software " and please try again" this happens at the 98% point of the install are there any tips that could stop my frustration? Please help!

    Is that literally what the error says? "some errors have occurred"? I find that hard to believe.

    Double posting on the same topic is generally frowned upon here and against the forum rules. I have posted a potential solution in your more recent thread on the same topic. Just letting you know.
