    Duff-Man says....the only thing that would prevent you from doing that is if your hardware was of the older era and required X to be in the first 8GB of the drive. School project? You're a student and have enough money to buy 10.3, 10.3 server and join ADC to get the 10.4 developer release? I'd have liked to have that much $$ back when I was in school.....oh yeah!

    Software piracy is the unauthorized duplication of computer software. Although most computer users today are aware that unauthorized use and duplication of software is illegal, many show a general disregard for the importance of treating software as valuable intellectual property. Copying software is an act of copyright infringement, and is subject to civil and criminal penalties. It's illegal whether you use pirated software yourself, give it away, or sell it. All software is copyright-protected, and the copyright is enforceable for 95 years. Copyright infringers are liable for any damages suffered by copyright owners plus profits attributed to the infringement, up to $150,000 per title infringed, or up to $250,000 and five years in jail.

    Duff-Man says....I suspected as much. If your friend's father worked for me I would fire him immediately. part of any sysadmin's job (at least where I work) is tracking and keeping in compliance with license agreements. As for you, I hope you soon get over your pirating days and learn to follow the rules a bit....oh yeah!

    And don't expect any help, if it's got to do with illegal things.

    All right, aside from the legal issues:


    Sounds like 3 partitions, not 4.

    To make the extra partitions, back up all your data, boot from the Panther CD, partition your Hard Drive (you will lose all your data), then install Panther onto one partition, Panther Server on another, and then the other OS on another. Make sure your partition sizes are what you desire. Because if later on into your machine usage you need an extra GB or so in a partition, you'll have to do everything in this paragraph all over again.

    If the kid is using the software for educational purposes... i.e. Learning OS X server... then why should Apple care...(The end result would be more sales for them)..... I realize it is illegal but so what..

    I say no harm no foul....
    Now if he is using it to run a company then Pay up or stop using it....

    Just my 2 cents worth...
    You can disagree if you wish... but it wont change my mind on it

    Duff-Man says....apple may not care too much about the kid using the software...but I'd bet they'd be *very* concerned about a business that has purchased OS X Server letting the software go out the door like that - they are the ones that Apple would come down hard on, and deservedly so....oh yeah!

    While you may be right... I have to say that i prefer Oracles approach to software...
    For a few dollars you can get a set of all their cd's...
    And use it for free all you want... if its for your own personal training or development...
    The cost comes in if you use it for comercial gain

    If all software were like that, piracy wouldn't exist.

    Let's look at photoshop for a minute.

    Most of the people that I know that have pirated copies of Photoshop just wanted it to have fun with personal pictures. The most commerical they get is putting the photoshopped image on their personal website.

    Usually, if you are in business, you are making money. Thus you can in the end afford to buy said software, even if you have to get it first on credit.

    In other words, those who pirate the software, are usually poor students/kids just wanting to use it for fun/personal not commerical.

    Me though, I am too paranoid about legal action taken against me, thus just about everything I have I own.

    Mike
