My wife's Mac Mini (PPC, 10.4.11) is having a problem with Finder constantly hanging. She'll try to open a Finder window and gets the Balloon of Doom - sometimes for several minutes. Most of the time, the window will eventually open, but it may take anywhere from 2-5 minutes. Right-clicking on the dock icon shows 'Application not responding'. Relaunching works (though closing all Finder windows in the process) and Finder behaves for a few minutes, then the problem reoccurs. I've run the Disk Utility to verify the HD in both normal & safe modes. (I'm having issues with booting from the distro DVD). And I have Disk Warrior on order. Is there anything else I should look at? I'm taking backups and am considering a complete re-installation, but that's such a hassle and I really don't have the time for it. Anything else I should look at?
