Yes, I've used OnyX in the past, when I've had occasional problems with font caches and the like. I wouldn't say it's an alternative to Disk Utility; the two apps do very different things.

I don't believe Apple ever made a single-processor MDD, so you probably have a Quicksilver. At any rate, Leopard should run okay on it.

I could be wrong, but I don't think the MacBook's integrated graphics is sufficient for SecondLife. That's why I never tried it on mine. I have a first-generation MacBook, though, so YMMV.
