    I'm running 10.6.7, I bought the new xcode tools and halfway through the installation it asked me to insert a disk and locked up my whole system. When I restarted my Mac I got the flashing file folder with a question mark, the installation wiped out my entire hard drive. Thank god it was backed up. I restored it and tried again. It happened a second time. What could be the issue? Very frustrating...

    You paid for and downloaded this from the App Store? That sounds like a trojan to me...
