    I don't understand :confused:
    Why would you need the Leopard disc to install Vista?

    You don't need the Leopard disk to install Vista on a Mac, however, you need the drivers for windows. You can actually download the drivers from the usual places if you don't have your disk with you.

    Sounds like you have installed Leopard on more than 1 computer? You should buy a copy if you don't own the disk, as it's a ONE LICENSE for one computer only, and be installed on one computer only.
