The only issue is that the version of Mathematica on the install disk is the PPC version and not the universal version.  Hence, my computer is running Mathematica through Rosetta, Apple's PPC interpretation layer.  This is quite slow!

can probably get the more recent version from wherever you bought the
your student version, or possibly from Wolfram Research technical
