    Hey Guys

    I know this may seem illegal but it is purley for genuine legal reasons.

    I always back up all my CD/DVD's anyway how do I burn the Leopard DVD's onto one SL DVD or is it possible to rip an image file and put it onto my external HD?

    I recently brought the Leopard OSX

    I'm just scared I'll loose it one day and not have it around, if that is the case is it possible to install OSX from a new copy of Leopard that comes with the new i-macs and install it onto my 3yr old I-Mac with Tiger?

    I'm pretty sure that restore disks only work with the model that they come with.

    No. Restore disks are machine specific.
    Why not just buy another copy to install on your old iMac?

    Nope, as others have said, the bundled software discs are tied to the specific machines they shipped with.
