    Hi, Recently I got a Mac Book Pro to work in office.
    It is having Mac OSX Tiger installed.
    But I found that Script Editor, Automator, DVD Player etc are not available. I am having Mac OSXTiger CD. Can anyone tell me how to install the above said 3 components on my Mac Book.
    It will be of great help if anybody can respond to this.

    best way would be to do an Archive and Install which reinstalls the system and the apps etc but leaves your user data untouched. you may have to reinstall large suite applications such as Adode Creative Suite and Office for Mac after this.

    thanks for your suggestion. can you pleasae clarify me whether the users and mail accounts added/created etc will be there or not. I have so many pics(jpg's), pdf's etc available on my Mac. Will they be erased or not? I don't want them to be erased.

    this means that if you tick the "Preserve User and Network Settings" your whole home folder and other home folders there are in the Users directory will remain preserved.

    as Mail's account settings are in the home folder your mail account and emails and any other files you have stored in your home folder will be preserved.

    if you have any important files that you want to keep i would store them in your home folder before the Archive and Install.
