Unable to load 10.5.1 update, just hangs on progress bar after reboot. Any ideas?

I am trying to load the 10.5.1 update to OS X Server (Leopard). I complete the Software Update process, it then say's it needs to reboot, when this happens, a progress bar is displayed on the screen, this stays at around 5% - forever, no disk movement, nothing. I then reboot and it goes back to normal (10.5).

Anybody else have this problem?

Thanks in advance.

Re-download the update from here

Run and give it a good chance to update .. the 10.5.1 can take quite a while .. (when you say forever did you leave it a couple of hours??)

The 10.5.2 update is due any day now .. it is likely to be an even bigger download and contain many more updates, fixes and feature enhancements.  IF your OSX is working OK the alternative is to wait a few days more and go straight to 10.5.2

Thank you for this, I'll leave it until 10.5.2 is released. As for waiting forever, my always said I was impatient, I waited around 30 minutes. If I try 10.5.1 I'll leave it for a few hours, maybe even overnight.

Thanks for the quick response.

Also .. BEFORE you run any OSX update I always recommend running Disk Utility and run Repair Permissions on the HD.
Usually speeds up the install process.
