    Since what you're suggesting is illegal, I'll merely say how to do this in general :p

    1: Download .iso file
    2: Burn to DVD with Roxio/Nero/any other ISO burning app
    3: Put DVD into computer needing installation.

    It also can't even be DONE to a generic PC in general, besides the illegal part. :p

    Sure it can. He just wants to create an installation disc. If the download was a standard format .iso file it won't be an issue.

    Oh! Not install, just make! :rolleyes: Okay, that's good then. My mistake.

    It's still illegal, though... :eek:

    Dude, I can't even comprehend what you're saying. Want to run through your post, add some punctuation to help it make sense, and try again?

    You know it is illegal and you want to do it anyway? Why should anyone here help you? Forum rules specifically say don't encourage piracy, so you shouldn't even be asking.

    dont you have your restore discs, or the leopard instal disc?

    edit: why use tiger if you have leopard

    no its not that easy to install tiger on pc hardware. you say you downloaded tiger which means you got it illegally

    he purchased leopard. He pirated a copy of tiger that he wants to install and use until his purchased copy of leopard is delivered.
