    For this your friend will have to purchase the Leopard operating system on the apple website or in store.

    Heres something to note:

    As you can see in those numbers there, 10.4.11 & 10.5.6

    The 10 means Mac OS 10. The 4 in the first one means Tiger Operating System, the 5 in the second means Leopard operating system. The numbers behind it are just showing what version of that OS you are running. Leopard isn't free and a disk with it on needs to be purchased.

    FWIW I would not buy Leopard 10.5.x either in the Apple store or website. You can get it much cheaper on eBay or Craigslist. I got a family pack last year for $89 on eBay while Apple wanted $199 for it I think.

    Not proper and a violation of the EULA. Your friend needs his own copy of Leopard.

    (Make sure the person's system is not really old and can't install Leopard).

    Actually...

    1) It likely won't work, unless he has the same model of Mac (if this is the disc that came with yours).
    2) It is piracy.
    3) It is against the Apple EULA.

    Family Packs are only for the same household.
