Hey every one just a quick question:

My computer has been crashing allot lately and the genius at the apple store suggested that i reinstall leopard. Since when i installed leopard a few months ago, i had done the archive and install But now that i have used time machine and my files are backed up, he suggested doing an erase and reinstall would probably help the bugs as well as the long time it takes to verify and repair permissions. My question is since the leopard install disk i purchased from the store was not the family pack am i going to be allowed to reinstall from this disk or will i have to repurchase leopard. And secondly when i reload my songs back into i tunes if they have been authorized on 5 computers already and have had a de-authorization once this year. Is there a way to contact I tunes and tell them the situation and allow then songs to be reauthorized?

Hope this makes sense

Thanks in advance

    you are allowed to reinstall leopard on the same computer as many times as you need to. There is ABSOLUTELY no need to buy leopard again.

    And secondly when i reload my songs back into i tunes if they have been authorized on 5 computers already and have had a de-authorization once this year. Is there a way to contact I tunes and tell them the situation and allow then songs to be reauthorized?

    you don't need to do this and you don't have to contact anybody. You'll simply be able to reauthorize this computer when you try to play a song bought at the itunes store.
