I've spent the last few hours using Google and searching the forum for information on installing Tiger on 2 G4 towers at my office that do not have DVD capabilities. I converted a G3 and G4 tower with DVD sucessfully, but am scared of the non DVD drive conversion. Currently the G4s have OS 9.2 on them if that makes a difference. The way I see it is that I can buy one external firewire DVD drive and connect it to the computer. However I will have to move the harddrives to the DVD Drive. The other way would to be to buy an internal superdrives for the 2G4s which would be the safest way. I looked at MacWarehouse (CDW) for a superdrive but could not find one. These G4s have to get us through the next year until we can move to intel macs hopefully. Has anyone sucessfully CLEAN installed via an external firewire drive or do I need to go via the other route? Does it take long to swamp a CD Drive for a DVD drive? We do have a programmer/ IT person who is swamped right now so I don't want to make too much work for him or if putting a drive in is like putting in memory, I can do it. Thanks for any advice!
