I have had to reboot the system before after a problem but over the course of time since upgrading my iMac has been just unbearbly slow.
I have tried so many ram fixes but none are working. I am saving up for a new mac but in that time I will need this one to be functioning properly.
One thing I noticed when OSX re-install was some of my HD's were not recognised. Can this be altered?
I would first install SL on an external drive, boot from that drive, load all your software and see if all the drives are recognized. Keep it as your startup disk for a few days and if all works well, clone the external to the internal.
