    How do you reformat a MAC?
    Hey guys, I know for my PC I just insert the WindowsXP cd and it took me through the reformatting process setup. With MAC, is it the same thing with leapord? Or do they have another way to do it? Thanks

    Pretty much the same, You pop in the Mac OS X disc or restore disc then after you start you immediately press and hold the 'c' key. That will make it boot to the disc, if you want a choice of where to boot from press and hold the option button (alt button). Then follow on-screen setup.
