    I installed it last night, with problems. It seems that when I tried to installed in on my startup volume, a file called 'Big System Morsels' would screw up. So, I installed it on my other partition, then started up from there, and installed it on the first partition.

    Good luck.

    Well... :o ...seems I downloaded the International English Updater....

    I had used a link purporting that the North American English Updater was actually the International English Updater instead. I used the link that was posted...dumb mistake.

    Anyways, it isn't easy to be confused when every updater file up there on Apple's site is named the same name... <img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" />

    I had problems downloading / installing via Software Update. The damn thing crashed on me twice after an hour or so of downloading. I then decided to just download the disk image file at the advice of XLR8YourMac...that worked fine once I got the thing downloaded. 56k tries my patience sometimes...
