&gt;&gt; I was going to download a new iso today. My old PowerPC Mac Mini needs<br>
&gt;&gt; to be rebuilt and it&#39;s so far out of date I figured I&#39;d just do it<br>
&gt;&gt; from scratch. Anyway, it seems that all the other architectures have<br>
&gt;&gt; fairly recent iso image dates while the PowerPC seems to be a year<br>
&gt;&gt; old.<br>

&gt;&gt; Or maybe this is just a date problem on the files or something.<br>

&gt; No, it&#39;s my fault. I&#39;ve been meaning to fix the autobuilds for PowerPC,<br>
&gt; but I completely forgot that they were broken. I&#39;ll look into it this<br>
&gt; weekend.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; The hardware hasn&#39;t really changed much though, it should be fine to<br>
&gt; boot with the latest CD there and use the current stage to install. The<br>
&gt; stages themselves should be up to date.<br>

</div></div>Hi Joe,<br>
   Thanks very much for the answer. In my case it looks like I&#39;m sorry<br>
I woke you up. I tried the most recent 2009 CD as well as the 2007 CD<br>
I built the machine with the first time. Looks like this Mac Mini has<br>
gone down hard - bad disk at least, possibly bad memory. I&#39;m not sure<br>
it&#39;s worth my effort to fix it as it&#39;s so very slow.<br>
<br>
   Anyway, I appreciate the answer and wish you all the best. Thanks<br>
for your efforts.<br>
<br>
Cheers,<br>
