    I wanted to backup my Leopard DVD to another DVD (I always lose or scratch important DVDs). What software do I need to do this?

    Disk Utility, built right in.

    Make an image from the disc, then burn the image back to another disc.

    if you have Toast or something you should be able to do a straight copy.

    This won't copy the Leopard Bootcamp Drivers though if I remember correctly.

    i remember that too, any way to get bootcamp included?

    also, any way to trim down the size of the disk so it will fit on a non DL disc? like get rid of languages and the like?

    As was suggested above, making a Disk Image in Disk Utility will do the job fine. You just need to select "DVD/CD Master" in the "Image format:" field and no encryption when you set up the image creation. Once it has created the disk image, you can then burn it to a double layer disk and it will be a duplicate of the original- with the BC drivers and everything else was on the original.

    Or as the other suggestion said, use Toast's copy function to do the same thing with again the limitation that it will require a double layer DVD- no workaround for that.

    Actually that is not the case as long as you use the "DVD/CD Master" selection in the "image format:" field when you are creating the disk image itself.
