    My brother has a MacMini that he doesn't use anymore that came with SL Server. Does anyone know if I can use the disks that came with this to install SL Server under VM Ware? I know I could just try it (which I will if no one know's but it would save me work)!

    (I know there may be an issue with regard to licence but he will actually give me the machine which I have no need for either so won't feel too bad about it if it can be done - just want to run one old Rosetta App under Lion!)

    Nope, those gray disks are tied to the type of Macs, that is, Mac Mini in your case.

    You'll need the regular operating system disks that used to be for sale at apple
