My best advice is to install OSX as a clean install, not an upgrade to 9. The instructions for 'upgrade' and the tech notes do not adequately explain the risks on the 'upgrade'. I upgraded one of my machines from 9 to 10 and all was well for a week. Then I had a kernel meltdown and nearly lost everything. My other installs were done by backing up everything to CD and then installing a clean version of 10. No problems since.
