Hi there. I decided to upgrade my Powerbook G4 laptop to Mac OS X V10.5. After I'd installed the OS I did a software update, which brought back up loads of updates. I ran these and then tried to close down the computer. This prompted the message 'Install Updates and Restart' (or something like that). It was taking ages to shut down, so I did a force quit and then closed down my Mac. Surprise, surprise when I restarted it today the computer locked up at the point where the time and date should appear in the menu bar. I then get the spinning beach ball of death. Any suggestions about how I can resolve this would be greatlyt appreciated. I'm trying to figure out how to re-install from the installer discs, but I cant figure out which key you press to get the computer to start up from the disc? Richard
