    Ok, so I'm about to have my MBP delivered. I was wondering, to save time, how I could directly boot into the Leopard install disk. I like to customize my Leopard installation and not waste time with registering etc.

    Do you mean, you want to do a fresh install right away and not worry about the initial setup they give you? If so, just pop the disc in, and hold C right when you turn the computer on. But make sure you hold down C before you see the apple logo. But just a little for-warning, if you are booting off the disc's they supplied, they contain all the same software that apple preloaded.

    In a Hell predominately of my own making
    And you'll still be presented with all the "first boot" process as well.

    Nothing wrong with a clean install, you can eliminate a lot of stuff that will be unnecessary, like language packs, printer drivers, etc., and save gigs of space. As far as the registration & new user setup stuff, it'll always be part of the initial startup process, whether out of the box or as a result of a reinstall.

    Thx for the help. Yeah I just wanted to save the 5minutes or so it takes to register when booting from the hard disk the first time. I wanted to eliminate all the extra stuff that I don't need from the pre-loaded installation like the language packs, drivers etc.
