    I'm a complete newbie to Macs. Bought my first Mac and wanted to upgrade the hard drive and complete a fresh install with my OSX DVD that came with my system. When I change the drive how to I get the OS on the drive? Do I boot to the DVD or the HD? How do I boot the drive I need?

    1. Install HDD
    2. Start computer , insert disk and hold down 'C' (may need to restart after disk is inserted).
    3. Follow instructions.
    4. Enjoy
