    I just got a new imac (i7, 27") a few weeks ago and I noticed that the new ilife that came preinstalled did not have iDVD on it. I used iDVD lot in the past and was really hoping to use it again.

    I have read a few posts that if you have an older version of iDVD and upgrade to ilife11, iDVD still works. I have a copy of ilife09 and was wondering if it was possible to install that on my new mac but still keep ilife11. I haven't tried it yet because I'm afraid I will overwrite ilife11 and I really don't want to do that. Anyone have any suggestions or know what will happen if I put ilife09 on a mac that already has ilife11? Brand new mac with clean lion install.

    You should be able to follow the instructions here to install specific iLife '09 applications from your older machine's reinstaller DVDs.
