    Is this possible? I guess the drivers for PB are bundled on the install disc. Will this cause any issues?

    1) It's illegal. The PB disks are licensed for that machine only.

    2) The restore disks are keyed to the type of machine they ship with. PowerBook disks will install on any Mac that reports itself to be a PowerBook (this includes iBooks). They will not install on an iMac.

    I used my PowerMac 10.3 DVD to install Panther on my old iBook. It was legal, I own a copy of Panther, but my Panther CDs were 10.3.0, and the PowerMac was the latest release of Panther, and I was lazy ;)
