    I was just wondering... How small can a Tiger install get while still being functional? Under 3GB? Thanks.

    Thanks. However, I knew the requirements on the box, I just wondered if it was possible to remove printer drivers and languages to get the size down below 3GB...:)

    iirc yes. Might need to remove fonts and text-to-speech voices as well.

    I remember the PowerPC version being about 2 GB for just the operating system. No clue how updates would increase the size.
