    Hello,

    is it possible to buy a new internal optical drive, either combo or super, for my 700MHz G4 iMac, and make it bootable? I'm debating wether to buy an external DVD-drive, but I realized that if buying Tiger, I cannot install it from that drive. (correct me if I'm wrong)

    Thanks in advance for answers. :)

    Some drives work for booting, right off.

    The Lacie Dual layer drive boots some machines ok. As do the Pioneer A06 Single Layer drive.
