This has probably already been explained...

I am working in Photoshop with a 200Mb file. When I apply some changes to the file (eg colour mode change) the cursor becomes the beach ball and the program seems to freeze but eventually applies changes.

I am working in Tiger with several other programs open.

My concern is that I have already had a hard drive die on me - what are the chances?!!!!

Try quitting other apps. How much RAM do you have - could probably use more..? That is not a tiny file... the beachball is the app 'thinking'.
