    Hi all
    Do you guys know if the dvd that came with my macbook, the startup dvd for leopard, can I use that to install leopard on another computer? Or is this just a start up dvd if something goes wrong with my computer. In other words, is this the actual OS installer?

    It is the OS installer but it can only be used on a machine of the same type and time. That is, you can't use a MacBook disc on an iMac and you can't use it for an older or newer MacBook.

    and if you're not sure, try sticking the disc in and seeing if it'll let you install.
