kernel_task help

I installed 10.5 (Leopard) on my G4 733 Mhz (after minor tampering with the install package, just switched a boolean FALSE to TRUE).

Everything works fine after startup, but once I sleep the computer and wake it back up, kernel_task starts using at as much CPU runtime as it can, as in past 90%.

Any ideas? I've tried a fresh install (wiped disk), but to no avail.

Thanks!
-Peter

edit: Problem solved. Turns out installing it from a another computer with target disk wasn't so good an idea as I'd thought.
After installing a DVD drive, things started going smooth again.

If a function uses a particular process or algorithm such as a Fast Fourier Transform to perform an operation, it would not be appropriate to document it in a series of comments in the source code.

VARIANT_AND(3)								 1							    VARIANT_AND(3)

variant_and - Performs a bitwise AND operation between two variants

SYNOPSIS
mixed variant_and (mixed $left, mixed $right) DESCRIPTION
Performs a bitwise AND operation. Note that this is slightly different from a regular AND operation. PARAMETERS
o $left - The left operand. o $right - The right operand. Note As with all the variant arithmetic functions, the parameters for this function can be either a PHP native type (integer, string, floating point, boolean or NULL), or an instance of a COM, VARIANT or DOTNET class. PHP native types will be converted to variants using the same rules as found in the constructor for the "VARIANT" class. COM and DOTNET objects will have the value of their default property taken and used as the variant value. The variant arithmetic functions are wrappers around the similarly named functions in the COM library; for more information on these functions, consult the MSDN library. The PHP functions are named slightly differently; for example variant_add(3) in PHP cor- responds to VarAdd() in the MSDN documentation. RETURN VALUES
