    I would like to install worldbook 2004, which came with my eMac on my Daughters mac mini.

    The eMac died a death a few years ago, but I still have all the discs.

    Obviously I cannot restore the software, (its Panther), but I guess I should be allowed to use it as I bought it bundled with the eMac.

    I still have the world Book disc too, but it wont install from there, It says it needs to be installed from the eMac Software Install DVD's

    Can anyone tell me how I can extract it ? Or a reason my I should not be allowed ?

    If that's the case then it was more than likely licensed to be used only with that eMac, since it was bundled with it, and not any other computer.
