    I just bought a shiny new MBP to replace my 700mhz G3 MacBook. I know that I'm not supposed to do it...but...would I be able to use the Tiger system disks that came with my MBP to install Tiger on my MacBook? Before some of you tell me that it is unethical or whatever, I'm just curious!!

    Not unethical at all, but the discs that came with your MBP are for Intel machines, while your iBook is PowerPC.

    Retail Tiger works fine. What you want to do won't. It's system specific.
