    re-install mac osx from lacie external usb dvd drive

    Sorry, what I meant was I was able to select the external drive as a Startup Disk option using the Tiger system prefs... but couldn't do that again once Leopard was installed. So no, haven't tried actually booting a copy of Tiger from a USB drive.

    re-install mac osx from lacie external usb dvd drive

    Safari 4.0 crashing on G4

    I installed the new release of Safari today and, while it runs fine on my Intel Macbook, it's a disaster on my G4 Powerbook. Pages either half-load before freezing or load fully and then freeze.
