    My computer is 1.25 GHz PowerPC G4
    256 MB DDR SDRAM
    Mac OS X Version 10.4

    The version I have works on G4 PPC's

    So how can I fix it.

    Well I created a new image in disk utitlity called leopard. I made it 8 Gb and a sparse disk image

    I then restored the Mac OS X Leopard.dmg to it.
    I opened up leopard and deleted the languages and printer drivers
    I then created a new image in disk utility called boot. I made it 4.7Gb and a sparse disk image.

    Then I restored leopard to boot.
    Then I burn't boot to a SL DVD.

    Not sure your system meets the minimum requirements for Leopard, regarding ram.

    Anyway, the procedure should be fine, although when I tried it some times ago I wasn't actually able to boot from the disk (the system restarted after half an hour grinding). Try burning it a slower speed or with another brand of DVDs.

    May I ask you why you want to make the single layer?

    Ok. I tried burning it at slower speed and i have booted off the same disks with another operating system about a week ago.

    The reason is my Mac doesn't burn DL disks

    Also this method works with 9A466. The one I am trying to install is 9E25
