    I was updating the software on my G3 iBook when I lost the connection and my computer froze. When I tried to restart the computer, all I got was the grey spinning wheel and the apple logo. The wheel just keeps spinning but it never gets any further. I tried to run disc utilities from another computer while in firewire mode but it said my laptop was ok.
    Any suggestions other than reinstalling the system?

    Assuming you can't get into the system to run a combo update of 10.4.6, then I'd try an Archive & Install. It's reasonably hassle-free. :)
