I have a Lombard 333mhz with 320mb ram 40gb HD and cdrom. no battery. I will install a fresh copy of panther and 5 times out of 10 i will get a cirle with a line through it upon the next reboot... it also does it out of the blue sometime after its been used for weeks flawlessly then does it, most of the time forces me to re install OSX all over again, i have no clue whats going wrong as it doesnt do it all the time but enough for me to notice it now and its really making me mad. it takes long enough to install panther on this as it is, let alone having to do it twice.
also i had a pc card 802.11g from linksys that worked great for weeks, then just doesnt show up anymore. what gives??
