I had no trouble with your input in Version 5.0. I did remove the ";" at the
end to see the results, which are InterpolatingFunctions.

In Version 4.2.1, Mathematica stopped midway through the range due to
exceeding the maximum number of steps. (So that is certainly one thing that
is better in Version 5.)

Your equations appear to be proper so I don't understand why you are getting
initial conditions messages.

I'm a newb to mathematica. I'm trying to use NDSolve for a system of 2
2nd order ODE's and it complains that the number of initial conditions
(4) is not equal to the total order of the system (2). But I'm pretty
sure I've specified all the initial conditions. I've pasted the NDSolve
code I'm trying to write.

\!\(\(solution\  = \ NDSolve[{\(y''\)[t] == \(-\((\(-\ x[
        t]^2\) + y[t]\ v^2)\)\), \ \(x''\)[
                t] == \(-\((\ x[t] y[t] + x[t] v^2)\)\),
                     y[0] == 0, \(y'\)[0] == \(-1\), x[
            0] == 1, \(x'\)[0] == 0} /.
              v -> \@\(\(x'\)[t]^2 + \(y'\)[t]^2\), {x, y}, {t, 0,
