#1) Yes it can be done, but the process takes some time and is not
always perfect because there most probably will be some old remnant stuff
from R4 that will confuse R5's glibc2 and create problems. You are better
#2) Not really, you can (if you created seperate partitions for /home
and /) keep your old /home partition and format your / and /usr and any
other that has binaries on it. otherwise youshould backup all important
data and format/reinstall.
#4) I don't think the virus is harmful, just turn off AutoStart config
in the QuickTime control panel.
: I'm not having much luck upgrading from R4 to R5.
: #1 Can this be done?
: #2 Should I delete all my old partitions and start from scratch
: #3 Should my Mac lockup when I insert the R5 cdrom?
: #4 Should I wait for the non-viral version of the R5 cd?
