    I already have a Macbook Pro, but I am looking at buying a cheap, used powerbook on eBay as a new "beater" machine. I found a nice one, except the superdrive is dead. If I were to buy it I would want to do a clean install of Leopard, requiring an optical drive. My question is: would I be able to share the superdrive of my Macbook Pro to the Powerbook as if it were a Macbook Air?

    Thank you!

    Hook up the PowerBook to your other mac as a target drive and install OSX that way.
