    Re: which one?

    I usually install the combo update on my G4, since the accumulated wisdom of various Macintosh web sites indicates that using the combo updater generally provides a better update than using the incremental updaters. The Combo update for 10.4.4 is "only" 116 MB, downloading as I type this.

    ost people don't have trouble with the delta, but using the combo installer is still the safer way to go.

    The regular Update has everything that is new since 10.4.3 and the Combo has everything new since 10.4.0.

    So use the regular update if you have 10.4.3 and the Combo if you have 10.4.0 to 10.4.2. If you don't know what you've got, choose "About this Mac" under the Apple menu -- or use the Combo if that's too much trouble ;)
