    Whenever i try to boot from the Tiger install disk on my PowerBook G4 PPC, it goes into a Kernel Panic, saying the PowerBook 3,4 or something isn't supported. I have a Leopard disk, and it works perfectly, but it says that i need Tiger installed first, so i got the tiger disk.

    I have a 800 Mhz processor.

    How do i stop this from happening, and install Tiger?

    I'm a complete noob at this, so please give me as many details as possible

    Well sounds like a Leopard Upgrade DVD and a Tiger System Restore DVD ...

    Just google "leopard upgrade disc and full install" and click on the Appleclinic link

    It doesn't show you how to burn a new DVD, but exposes a flaw in the system check routine on the DVD.
