FMP v6 and FMS v5.5 OS X Unexpected Quit

My setup is as follows:

FMP Server v5.5 running on OS X v10.3.3 (G4 tower)

FMP Client v6 running on OS X v10.3.3 (2 iBooks and 1 iMac)

My problem: When trying to open a file with FMP Client v6 being served by FMP Server v5.5, I get unexpected quits. The crashlog file generated says that a "EXC_BAD_ADDRESS" AND "KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE" has occurred. If I open this same file directly with FMP Client v6, it opens properly.

If anyone has any insight into this problem, it would be appreciated.

Have you tried reinstalling FM Server with appropriate updates? How are you opening the file from the computer running FMP v6? Specifically, are you starting FMP and then opening the file via the host file button, or are you trying to open directly from a shared folder to the machine running FM Server?

Ok. I have this setup working now. Here's what I did:

Repaired disc permissions on the server.

Reinstalled FMS 5.5v4 onto the System hard disk (previously it was on another partition).

Now everything is working. Could it be that FMS cannot be installed on a partition other than the OS X startup partition? :confused:
