Hi Joe,
   Thanks very much for the answer. In my case it looks like I'm sorry
I woke you up. I tried the most recent 2009 CD as well as the 2007 CD
I built the machine with the first time. Looks like this Mac Mini has
gone down hard - bad disk at least, possibly bad memory. I'm not sure
it's worth my effort to fix it as it's so very slow.

   Anyway, I appreciate the answer and wish you all the best. Thanks
for your efforts.

Cheers,
Mark
