    can I re install Leopard DVD from external USB DVD drive? If so how? I have a Powerbook G4. This is for future referal in case.

    Thank you

    You can do what you want with an Intel Mac, but a PPC Mac can't be booted with a USB device (with exceptions), thus you need a Firewire drive to make bootable copy (via CarbonCopyCloner perhaps) of your Leopard DVD onto Firewire HDD.

    Most systems that are about 7 years old get to be disappointments when you start looking at current technology.
