    Ok my HD just died and needs to be replace with a new one. Current it has a copy of Leopard on it that I installed from a Family Pack of licenses which is used up. How do I go about using the same license from me dead HD on the replacement HD? Is this even possible? Thanks! :)

    If you still have the disc you just pop it in and install.
    If I remember, the license is for 3 computers.. Since it is the same computer you are fine.
    Also it is more a good faith license. There is no key, registration or anyt hing like that... So you will have no issues.

    You'll have zero problems installing with your Leopard discs.
