No, As I still use the Mac side a lot, it's actually been very
reliable. I did however replace the disk drive. There wasn't anything wrong
with the old one, I just wanted a larger drive with which to load things
like Debian and NetBSD. So I got an IBM 4.2 Gig drive, and partitioned about
250 Meg for MacOS and four other partitions for Linux Root&user, Linux swap,
NetBSD Root&user, and NetBSD swap.
I've installed NetBSD, and it hasn't shown any tendency to lock up, but
I've been trying to work with Debian, but keep running into the machine
locking up. I can't figure out what might be causing this.
