My dad brought home a G4 iMac today. I'm currently obtaining the *ehem* DVD, if you know what I mean... I sold my Leopard disk last year (desperate times - iPhone 4 launch :rolleyes:) for a pretty penny not thinking I'd end up with so many PPCs a year later.

Is there anyway I could load this DVD on a USB drive and put it in target mode and install it wirelessly like if it were the DVD? I do have DVD disks, but they're single layer and I know you can't boot a PPC off USB drives.

Couldn't you get a Dual Layer DVD-/+R?

Yes, I COULD, but I'm not going to go out and buy a pack just for that. Anyway, I found a solution. Thanks.
