I'm a *heavy* user, so I don't have a lot of time for debugging. Sorry.

I monitor and benefit greatly from this group, but it seems that I see a 
lot of 'well it never happens to me'. Well, s... does happen.

I have had just about every 'fault' mentioned here by others with 
10.4...mouse, booting, freezing...you name it. Today, I rebooted 3 times 
in the first 15 minutes of operation.

Then, I realized that the update manager was downloading and installing 
almost 100MB of updates, so I'm now waiting for that to finish before 
doing anything else.

Bottom line: I think in my case I'll have to buy a new system to 
accommodate 10.4's ravenous appetite for system resources. Of course, a 
newbie setup primer might help.

Don't get me wrong. I really do like the good intentions of 10.4, but at 
this point I'm getting those same feelings I had about Windows which is 
why I went Linux in the first place.

So, how about a recommendation for a minimum system hardware requirement 
for 10.4 that will make everyone's life, especially mine, easier to use it?
