    first of all, this isn't what some people might be thinking. I do have my (legal) copy of Leopard, but I always like to make copies of all of my important CDs and DVDs just in case.

    so this time I would like to be able to convert my Leopard DVD in to a DMG file on my external HDD so I can use it again if/when I need to reformat. someone told me that Toast would do it, but I don't know if it will. if it does, would someone please tell me how hard it is to do?

    now, if Toast doesn't do it what would?

    Toast works, I've already "backed-up" my copy ;)

    You'll need a DL burner and DVD.

    I'm not sure if it's still the case, but Toast used to have issues with creating bootable disks from a DMG.

    you can duplicate it easily using Disk Utility. This is from Macworld:

    This also gives you a DMG copy of the disk on your drive, so you can leave it on an external drive as an extra back up ;)
