    It depends on which definition of the word "can" you're referring to.

    by "can" i meant "is it possible".

    ok thanks for the answers.

    and "is it possible" to copy the original dvd and use the copy for my gf's macbook?

    You can use Disk Utility to make a bootable backup copy.

    Just read the OP again and I think part of the question might be whether Leopard will install on either PPC or Intel. The DVD contains installs for either platform (keeping in mind, of course, the above licensing restrictions).

    You don't have to copy the DVD. You can use the same DVD to install on your girlfriends mac. However it won't be legal.

    the DVD is universal, thus can be installed on both PPC and Intel Macs
