My 466 with 1.12 GB RAM was complaining after only 2 tracks. I am sure 
you saw in other posts I had to swipt my fella's 1 GHz G4 iBook.

AND I am shopping for a processor upgrade. 466 to 1.4 GHz is a huge 
jump though. Not too sure about heat synchs and all......<GULP!>

The iDVD part really gets me mad. I was using the older iDVD, albeit 
slooooooowwwwwwwly, in the Sawtooth.
