    Hello - thanks to anyone who may be able to shed some light
    on the following:

    I bought and installed a 120G WD Caviar HD
    (purposely under the 128G max for this model)
    installed as SLAVE to the factory Quantam Fireball 10G.

    The G4 AGP Tower is a 400mhz/740ram
    now with orig. 10G (master) and 120G (slave)
    partitioned to 80G/30G.

    Leaving all the OS9 apps and files intact on the 10G,
    I formatted the new 120G as a mac extended.
    I then installed OS9.0 on the 80G, and updated to OS9.2
    (Firmware update had been current on the G4 previously
    (firmware update for new HD?)

    followed by JAGUAR installation disc 1 only
    and all the updates - "about this computer" indicates
    10.2.6 running.

    Now I get crash errors (black unix through the desktop)
    after a few minutes of operation.
    I have run disk first aid with no problems, verified and repaired
    permissions more than once. FSCK -Y
    under admin log-in numerous times.

    I think the problem lies with user log-in (root?) issues ?

    The 10G and 30G HARD DRIVES show a folder hierarchy
    next to its name in DISK UTILITY ( folder/name/something)
    -but the 80G doesn't have any name at all next to it !

    Disk copy is intermittent when mounting dmg files
    although the pkg file shows the correct icon.

    Does my G4 AGP even run 10.2.6 ?

    I will follow this post up with crash log from the console..........

    Please do not post duplicate threads, one is more than enough!
