Hi - I upgraded an old MBP to Leopard so have a copy of Tiger which is no longer in use - Will I be able to install the MBP version of os x 10.4 Tiger on an old ibook G4 or do I need the full retail version...

Thanks for any help ...

What kind of Tiger is it?
If it's the restore DVD from the MacBook Pro, that's piracy, and it won't work.
If it's a Tiger DVD/ CD, it's perfectly legal, and should work perfectly.
