So this is the problem: My OS X 10.4.11 is not starting up on my Powermac G5. When I boot up I get a message telling me to reboot my system 'kernal panic: We are hanging here..' I'm pretty sure I deleted a necessary file. I am trying to install OS X again using archive and install because I do not want to lose the data I have (my music & more) but the problem is I didn't leave enough room to install OS X, even with just the basic install. I have an external harddrive hooked up and I need to somehow transfer some info to that harddrive to leave the space to install or throw some files in the trash to leave enough room. I would like to know if this is possible. I can't boot up in safe mode. Your help is really appreciated.
