Okay, I had to reinstall OS 10.3 on my new hard drive after the old original one started having issues. I learned that I should go and download the MacOSXUpdateCombo10.3.8.dmg file from Apple... which I did. Now I run the installer and it says "This volume does not meet the requirements for this update". I have updated the OS X to 10.3.3 using the System preferences updating.

In order to use the Update Combo file, should all applications be at the 10.3.3 level (for example, my iTunes is 6.0.5 which I believe is part of the 10.3.9 update)? All my information is backed up, so I have no problem re-installing Panther again

Run Software Update. Restart. Run it again. Restart. Run it until it says, "No new software available." Problem solved. This whole Combo Updater is a headache at absolute best and a waste of time.

Irrelevant.

I have had no problem updating from 10.3.2 (from the CDs) to 10.3.9 with the Combo Update. It worked fine on the five systems I did recently. The only problem I had was on one system that previously had Tiger on it, so I had to select 'Erase & Install', or the installer would complain.
