    I have an iMac Intel C2D 17" (MA590LL) and the dvd drive broke. Don't have apple care so it would take an arm and knee to fix :( and I wanted to try installing leopard but can't with no optical drive. (virtual drive wont work either) since when you install leopard you have to restart the computer.

    basically, are external drives automatically recognized when the computer starts? thanks guys.
