    Link: How to use an iPod to install Tiger on a Mac without a DVD drive
    Description:: When Apple introduced Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger the installation disk included with the new operating system shipped on a single DVD. While most current Macs have a DVD Combo or Superdrive some older models only included a CD-ROM drive.

    Here is how you can install Tiger on your Mac if you don�t have a DVD drive. All you need is a Firewire equipped iPod or a Firewire external hard drive and a friend who has a Mac with a DVD drive.

    i am still mad that Apple stopped firewire-syncing with the iPod. just go ahead Apple and make those peecee users very very happy. angry loyal Apple users can be very very unfriendly.

    So am I, as I just got given a "broken" dual 800 Quicksilver (family media box?), and thought I'd put a USB2 PCI card in it to speed up the 5G iPods video uploading. Two days later I'm still on USB1.1, because these G4's apparently have a start up, restart and sleep issue with some USB2 cards.

    If FireWire support hadn't been removed, I'd never found this out! :(

    I'm saving this one. Travel overseas on business and hate taking the Tiger disk with me.
