    I have an old PowerBook G4/TiBook 1Ghz and want to erase everything on the drive to start over with a newer operating system (it is currently running on 10.3.9). What is latest OS that can run on this old baby and how do I erase everything and start from scratch? I'm an idiot when it comes to this kindda stuff! Thanks! :eek:

    she can handle leopard.

    throw a disk in and hold down C when the computer is turning on, it'll walk you through the install procedure.

    at one point it'll ask you what kind of install you wish to perform, select "erase and install"
