    Hey everyone,

    My macbook's optical drive doesn't work so I was hoping to find a way to remotely install Snow Leopard. I've got the most recent Leopard update. Any ideas? I could really use that extra six gigs!

    Use another macbook and use firewire target disk mode, this is one way. Also, two macbooks on the same network can share one DVD, turn on DVD sharing (you'll find this in preferences/sharing).
