When you say you lost Safari, do you mean it's not in your dock, not in your applications folder or both?
If safari has been uninstalled, then you may need to reinstall using original Mac OS X 10.5 disk.
Safari 5.0.6 for Leopard can be downloaded from here:
Not in the dock, not in applications. Search said not anywhere. Not in trash, etc...
I loaded the Safari 4.0.5 but when it mounted and I tried to drag onto the hdd the message said a later version was already installed.
If I load the 5.0.6 will the same message come up? I'm going to try...
No. After installing repair permissions and restart.
The link you gave me brought up this....
Oops! No idea how that crept in!
I just found the exact same link and seems to be loading on the G4....
All the Best!
Install successful. Restarting....Working!!!
You're the Best!
