    You use Leopard Assist if your going to install Leopard on a G4 that is below 876Mhz. To use it you must first being running Tiger, just run the app and do what it says, then reboot with the regular retail Leopard DvD in the optical drive. Install as normal. That's it. You never have to run Leopard Assist again (unless you reinstall Leopard) and there is no need to burn a 7.51Gb file.

    Or if you own/can borrow a PPC sytem that DOES support Leopard, you can; boot up the G4 you want to install it on in FireWire target disk mode, connect it via FireWire to the Leopard supporting PPC Mac, boot that computer up from the Leopard install DVD, and select the hard drive in the non-supported Mac as the destination. Thats how I got 10.5 running on my Cube.

    Its pretty much a one off hack used to run Leopard on older Macs that don't support it. ;)
