    In my small collection I have 2 iBook g4's, one of them running OS X (Panther) 10.3, the other running OS X (Tiger) 10.4! I would like to upgrade the software on one of the two to OS X (Leopard) 10.5. I don't have any installation media (discs/dvds/CDs, don't even have blanks), and I'm a cheap dirty bastard who doesn't want to purchase an install disc for Leopard. I'm planning on upgrading to Leopard via flashdrive, but I don't have the ISO files...
    I was just wondering if it were safe to download the ISO from these following links:

    I got my leopard image from the garden. It now lives on many a mac at my house.

    Getting mine from the Garden, hopefully Eden treats me and my .DMG file well!

    Update:
    Made a bootable flash drive for Max OS X 10.5 Leopard.
    ...
    However I noticed neither of my iBook(s) were charging, then I saw this..

    Looks like I'll have to wait a few days until my new charger comes in.
