Robin, are you referring to the JemBoss installation?  And do you  
mean a standalone installation, or a server installation?

I've never had a problem installing Jemboss/EMBOSS (and the Embassy  
packages) standalone in Jaguar, Panther and now Tiger.  PNG support  
requires some additional efforts (FINK takes care of that, for me).   
Jemboss 1.5 and EMBOSS 2.10.0 run fine on my powerbook under Tiger.

I always run the jemboos installer script to install everything  
(embassy included), and follow the Jemboss installation guide for OS  
X.  I also have it running fine on a dual-2.5GHz G5 running Panther  

When you update to Tiger, be sure to check the install option for the  
new X11, and then, install the developers tools and the new X11 SDK.   
And with Tiger, do NOT point the jemboss install script to Java 1.5,  
stick with 1.4.2, or even 1.3.
