    1. Insert disc and then Restart the iBook.
    2. Hold down the "C" key as the iBook starts up to boot off the disc.
    3. Wait for it to load and follow the promts. Click on Options and select the Erase and Install option.
    4. Go through the steps until you see "Customize" option. Click on that and de-check "Printer Drivers", "Additional Fonts", & "Language Transitions". This will save you about 3gb.
    5. Click Install and sit back for few minutes while it installs.
