  1. For my Mac-using friends: does anyone have Disc 1 of the Panther (OS X v10.3) install disks? I've got disks 2 and 3, a valid license key, and the Xcode Tools disk, but I need Disc 1 before I can reinstall my G4. I could resort to BitTorrent but I'm always sceptical of downloading software from there ... unless someone knows of a reliable source?

  2. For the Windows users out there, I've got a problem with Microsoft Media Centre 2002 SP3 (which is really XP Pro with extra media utilities): whenever I tell it to Hibernate or Suspend, the apps all close and it goes to the "Preparing to Hibernate" (or Suspend) screen and just hangs there. No error messages, no hints as to what's going on, nothing. Any ideas? I've tried disabling hibernation and then re-enabling it, to make sure it sets aside the 640Mb required, but it still hangs.

#1 - can't help you there, I only have Leopard.

#2 - I've seen that before with laptops, but can't remember what causes it. Have to think about it.

The media centre machine is a desktop - it was running XP (and would hibernate just fine) but I swapped out the hard drive and put Media Centre on it.

I noticed the drive was really badly fragmented so I disabled Hibernate (to remove the file), defragged and re-enabled it; I'll test it shortly... and it hangs just the same as before :(
