[vet-mm] Imac /flash problem

We have 22 eMacs ( 800MHz using OS.X 10.3.something ) which can be a bit slow loading the program ( 2 - 3 minutes ) but it runs well once loaded. They are not connected to the school network so the students save their work locally with regular back-ups to a portable HD. Occasionally Flash tells us that a script is causing it to run slowly, but generally very stable. 
At Cert 2 I give some graded assessment tasks in the second half of the year and they sit a graded exam each sememster ( school policy ). Of course they have the chance to demonstrate competency right up to the end of the year but the graded tasks help them with organisation, time management and give them some feedback in preparation for Cert 3.

I  have recently had problems with the Flash running really slowly - 20
seconds to open a menu item. The tech tells me it's a known problem and
there's nothing he can do to fix it. something about hundreds of small
files opening from the server???? Have suggested the program is on the
local machine blah blah blah..... if there is anyone out there who uses
flash on macs too i would appreciate any feed back.  I will get a more
technical description asap.

Also. wondering if others give graded marks for yr. 11 VET multimedia or
just s/n????
