I have had Leopard installed for three days on my iPod now. Everytime I go to boot, I get the blue screen of death. Safe Mode does not do anything.

Any tips before I do a fresh install?

Thanks!

:D

I've had the same problem but just recently it fixed for whatever reasone after an install. Do these things to ensure that you might get a working copy.

1 - Write Zero's to your iPod using Disk Utility
2 - Partition using the Intel Map "in options."
3 - After all your formating is done, get info on the volume you will be installing Leopard on and disable "ignore permissions." This f***s OSX up bad.
4 - When you install make sure you select Airport as your network, even if you use E-Net, because for some reason it fcked up otherwise.
5 - When you get logged in for the first time, diable auto-login.

Tell me if you experience more problems.

I can confirm what GoM said about the installation procedure and selecting ethernet. I did a full reinstall since my ethernet wasn't working, and with Airport selected, there are no problems. Weird.

mingistech-this wont install on any G3, according to the 'before you install' info.

mvv- try this with the ipod-

In disk utilities, give it 2 partitons. 'Restore' the dmg to 1.
Then start the install process from the first partition. It will act as a 'dvd install disc'.
When it re-starts, choose the partition #2 to install to.
Install as normal.

This worked great for me with a firewire drive. Using it now. The bonus is having the 'install' disc right there, ready to access the optional installs like Xcode, if needed. I can also unplug it and see how it does on my G4 imac.
