Will apple still send restore discs, (I think that's what they are called, the grey discs that are system specific) For PPCs? If so I have some questions:
#1: Are they free other than shipping?
#2 How far back (OS wise) will they go/ Whats the oldest computer they will sell the restore disc for?
#3 Are they reusable? As in could I buy five imac g3s and use the same restore disc for all of them?
#4 Could I order every one and keep them for if I need them or do you have to have proof that you own the product?
Thanks, this info will be a big help.

I lucked out when I got a PowerBook G4 off of a boss who had no restore disc. I took a chance and spoke to Apple about it. They said they'd send the original disc that came with it. About 3-5 business days later I received a Tiger installation DVD. It was just a generic DVD that looks like they burned it right then and there. I was rather surprised.
