    I want to install XP with Boot Camp but I got an error message about how it can't move some files or something. I did my reading, and realized I need to back up and restore to move some files or something... idk

    Backup is a breeze, no problem there.

    Restore is where I got a little confused. I don't have the original Leopard Install disk which I'm pretty sure I need to restore.

    BUT I what i need to know is if i could potentially just download a Leopard Install disk in the form of a .dmg file and burn it to a DVD and use that to restore?

    If that can be done, How do I got about doing that. I don't wanna screw anything up but this seems possible? help?

    Do you own a valid Leopard licence? If so, it may be worth giving Apple a call.

    If you have a Tiger licence then I advise you to go find a retail copy of Leopard or Snow Leopard and buy it.

    I wouldn't want to download OSX of any kind from a torrent site.
