Want to make iPhone apps.

iPhone SDK requires OS 10.5.

10.5 installer thinks my FS is messed up.
It thinks it can fix it.
It spends hours and hours in "less than a minute remaining".
I kill it.

I wipe the drive.
I restore from backup.

It "restores" the 865,000+ files in about six hours.
It then says it is "completing the restore".

This seems to be where it gives the right permissions and ownership to all 865,000+ files.
Based on the speed it is going by, I estimate I will get to use my computer again on Tuesday or Wednesday.
