    Did you upgrade from tiger, or do a clean install?

    do a clean install. but even i get application crashes with a clean install. i think its because Leopard is a little unstable at 10.5.1. maybe at 10.5.2 or 10.5.3 we will seen some better stability.

    I agree, back up your Mac then do a clean install. But if your mac continues to crash OS X frequently then I reccomend you take it in. :)

    Don't want to hijack your thread, but if I purchased a mac with a drop-in Leopard upgrade disc, in order to do a clean install would you just insert the drop-in Leopard disc and boot from the disc?
