My wife just called me to tell me when she booted our iBook (OS 10.4.6) it went into Safe Mode by itself and after it finished booting she saw the cursor but it wouldn't move.

The internal hard drive on my G3/600Mhz iBook is not long for this earth. I'm looking for advice from MeFis who have replaced the drive themselves; specifically, if faced with the task again would you say "Hell no!" or rather "Wow, that wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be"? [more inside]

I have a PC with WinXP Pro. She has an iBook with Mac OS X. Together they
share a router. e:\ is where I shove all my
music. How can I make this available to her to copy what she wants to her machine or her ipod?

The ink is wearing off the keys on my Macintosh "iBook." Are they easy to replace?

GarageBand woes. I have a white iBook G3 600MHz / 256MB RAM / 30GB hard disk. The machine does great with iMovie, Safari, Office, etc, but it's choking on GarageBand with "System Overload" errors. I try to play a 2-track composition with 1 instrument that's not a piano and it just stumbles and croaks. I'm sad, that Apple is leaving such a relatively new machine in the dust. My question is: should I bother upping the RAM? I know it will help at least somewhat, but will it make the difference between GarageBand exploding and GarageBand performing really smoothly? If not, I'd rather take the $100 I'd spend on new RAM and save it toward a new PowerBook G4. But then, is a G4/1GHz really going to be that much better than a G3/600MHz? Advice?
