    Hello Mac Gods . ..
    Some of you may remember me when I asked a zillion questions in the process of purchasing and setting up my Intel iMac. Now, I am looking to upgrade my G3 Pismo. My question is . . . if I upgrade the memory, etc. can I load the Mac OSX disk from my iMac on the Pismo? Is that legal? Is it possible or do I need to buy an upgrade?

    It's not legal. In addition the installer will probably fail to run as the recovery/installer discs you get with a computer are locked to computers of the same type, although I have managed to use PowerBook ones on iBooks in the past.

    You should buy another license. If you are going to want a few licenses the Family Pack might be the way to go...
