    I have a white rev1 Macbook and just ordered a 2.4ghz aluminum Macbook. Can I install OS X 10.5 on my old white macbook using the disc which comes with my new laptop?

    Edit: sorry if this is:

    a) in the wrong place
    b) already been answered

    I wasn't sure where to put it and I tried searching but didn't come up with any answers.

    The install discs that come with the new MacBook will only work with that specific model. Furthermore, if you want to install Leopard on your white MacBook, you should buy a separate copy of Leopard to keep everything legal.
