    I ordered a new iMac with iWork 09 pre-installed. It comes with the original disk and I wanted to make a backup of it just in case the disk gets corrupted or destroyed. I keep the backup in a different location. I tried to make the backup using KKitchen but it indicated that there was copy protection on the disk. I know Apple has done away with the need for a serial number. Is there any way to make a backup of the iWork original disk where it has copy protection?

    I am new at this having come over from the dark side.

    A program called Toast is really good for this.

    I always back up every software CD I get (iWork 09/iLife 09 etc).

    Toast will allow you to save it as a Disc Image meaning when you mount it it works the same way as having inserted the CD therefore should have any issues with Copy Protection (although I have never come across this issue with any Mac software)?
