Dead Panther

After installing the Safari 1.2 update a couple days ago, my PowerBook has been doing nothing but bad things. 1 in 4 or so web pages cause Safari to crash (including Apple's web site), drag and drop causes Finder to crash, and checking email causes Mail to crash.

So I reformatted and reinstalled the entire OS today. It booted fine, so I started applying the various updates. Installed everything just fine, but then froze up when it was "Optimizing my HD". Just sat there for an hour at 30%. So I force quit Software Update, rebooted, and now the machine won't load. It gets to the grey screen, and then pops a very pretty message that say "You need to reboot," as if I didn't just do that.

Looks like we'll try reinstalling again.
