Mo, constructive input this time.  Are you 100% sure everything is ok
with your hardware?  I don't know how to check the CPU but the hard
drive can be checked with Palimpsest Disk Utility.  I would also be
running Memtest at this stage with it hanging badly.  I could be wrong
but it would eliminate another area.
