I bought leopard family pack to update the operating system on my intel macbook and g4 733 tower, the problem being that my tower does not have a dvd drive. Is there anyway to use the macbook as an external dvd drive to install leopard which is currently running 10.3.9?

yes, put your MacBook in target disk mode, pressing "T" during startup. The MacBook acts then as external DVD drive and. You must only connect the two computers with a Firewire cable.

Thanks, that worked but unfortunately the processor for my 733 tower is to slow for leopard. Looks like I will have to upgrade.
