    Hi Guys,

    I've got an old Ibook G4 with Panther and Ilife installed - I want to update to Tiger but keep Ilife - I have a retail copy of Tiger that doesn't include Ilife...


    What is the cleanest way for me to install Tiger and keep Ilife ?


    Thanks for any any answers...

    Installing Tiger will not erase iLife. They are totally separate. You have nothing to worry about.

    Just don't do an erase and install.

    ok great - so it will give me the option to just upgrade rather than erase and install? will the old version of Ilife run ok on Tiger ?


    Thanks
