    Can you boot from the Disk? Do you have a DVD version and only have a CD-ROM? Do you get an error? Does the install crash?

    "OS X Tiger won't install" is very vauge. More info is a must.

    i have a dvd version of tiger. but not the retail one. whenever i try to install a message pops up and say "OS can't be installed on this computer" something like that.... i bought the disk off ebay and the seller says it will work wit most G4/G3 machines.... also it says "Ibook G4 Mac OS X install" on the dvd.

    The seller misinformed you. That disc will install only on the model it came with. :(
