    My brother who gave me my old G3 Pismo installed with Panther... Now says he going to send me a "copy" of the Tiger install disc...
    What sort of technical problems could I run into if I try to install Tiger from a copy. As apart from the fact that there are very few new apps that still work with Panther.... the sysyem on the whole works pretty well...and I'd prefer a computer that works to a computer that is f**** d up. Just for the sake of a few apps.
    thanks for any advice.

    Tell your brother you can't install illegal copies of software.

    No, that's a gift.

    But hand-made copies of a commercial product given to someone else is illegal.

    But you were being sarcastic, weren't you?
