    iLife is in the tiger restore disks that came with your computer. Just pop in the Tiger install disk #2 and something should pop up and then choose install additional applications. Choose what you want to install, in your case iLife.

    Similar problem here . When I try to reinstall I get this message :

    "To install Mac OS X and the applications that came with your computer, use the Mac OS X Install Disc 1. Double-click "Install Mac OS X and Bundled Software" and follow the onscreen instructions."

    I do not want to install OS X as I already have Leopard - will it leave Leopard intact?

    Just in case

    Pop in original install disc 1. Choose to install bundled software only. Click customize when you reach the 'installation type' option.

    Choose your options, and enjoy. :p

    why did you buy a MacBook with no install discs? assuming its second hand you should of asked the seller if the discs are included so you wouldnt have got into this situation. it could be stolen as a notebook user generally doesnt carry the install discs with them.

    either ask the seller for the install discs or buy iLife '08.
