    I'm getting a replacement hard drive for my Macbook and was wondering if I take the existing hard drive out which has got Tiger on etc. and then stick it in a enclosure and stick it in my Macbook will I be able to access the files on it. I want to transfer my music back over to my new hard drive you see.

    You should also be able to startup on it. System Preferences > Startup Disk to change default startup or hold down "opt" on startup and select which volume you want to startup on.
