its one of those days _ tried running system update but it hung up about 3/4 through checking _ then there was a question mark over system preferences in the dock _ trying to open system preference gave an error message stating that system preferences is not installed (it worked yesterday) _ now the system preferences icon is gone from the dock _ any ideas on how to get system preferences back ?

Is it gone from your Applications folder? You might have to do an Archive & Install from your Tiger disk to get it back.

Macfixit recommends retrying the update using the Combo installer if your original update is incomplete...you may be doing this anyway but thought I'd mention it.
