DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT install frontrow with the frontrow hack on a G4 machine that does not support it. Due to several complaints about the hack, it makes it so your menuette's dissapear and also make it so your system crashes. Hence my problem. I tried their way of repairing it, but to my demise, i have to reformat, reinstall.
Well, i had front row on my machine before with the original hack and yeah, my machine was working fine. This all didn't happen untill i installed the hack for the 1.2.2 update that my machine lost all it's menuettes (icons IE spotlight, clock, display) and started responding speratticly. that was a hayday and a half, trying to get everything fixed and me dreading that i would have to do what windows users call a "nuke & pave".
