I was trying to install Safari4 Beta and it wouldn't install stating my volume (hard drive) didn't meet the volume requirements. Then I tried installing Security Update 2009-001 and got the same message. I'm not real computer savvy, what am I doing wrong? Thanks.

    Don't know. Boot with your install disk, select your language, select Disk Utility from the Utilities menu, and repair the disk and permissions. Try installing again. If still no go, create a new admin user account, log into it, and try installing. If the problem remains, download and install the 10.5.6 COMBO updater, repair permissions, and restart.
