    Just wondering if i can install OS 10.5 on my DA. I love the way it sounds, and thought it would be a good computer to keep around for mp3's. Can I run 10.5 on it, and use monitor sharing and teleport and possibly stream sound to it from my other computers to take advantage of the built in 15 watt and the isub.

    There are hacks to get around the 867MHz minimum but really Tiger would be best as Leopard will feel slow.

    Its super easy to do if you've got another PPC Mac that supports 10.5 around. I installed 10.5 on my Cube using FireWire target disk mode from my PowerBook G4. Its a single 500MHz processor and 10.5 is still pretty usable. I did upgrade the graphics card to a Radeon 7500 and the RAM to 1.5GB though. If you've got the Rage 128 card, I think you've got to upgrade it to at least a Radeon or GeForce2 since I don't think there are any drivers in 10.5 for the 128.
