osx tiger security update 2005-07 1.1 woes

well, a combination of things has rendered my powerbook unbootable at the moment with a kernel panic somewhere in com.apple.iokit.IOHIDFamily.

there were a couple of things i suspected was causing the problems, but after moving everything out of the way, it is still dead. the thing i'm narrowing it down to is me installed AOL for OS X (more on that later) and the new Security Update 2005-07 1.1 from apple. i've tried moving alot of extra kernel extensions out of the way so that they won't load, but it still seems to be quite dodgy.

does anyone know how to run the security update again from the cached copy on my hard drive?
