yes, but the os now is 10.3.9 and I am starting to have a couple of
troubles with some things, and the os boxed with my mac mini are intel
specific, so they won't install on my poor old booger ppc.  So, it has
precipitated this move.  I can always go back if I don't like it.
it's just time right?  thanks for all of your help,

Let's not spend our time and resources thinking about things that are
so little or so large that all they really do for us is puff us up and
make us feel like gods. We are mammals, and have not exhausted the
annoying little problems of being mammals.
