    i have:
    a power mac g4 with a cd drive running panther
    a macbook pro with a dvd drive running leopard

    i want to put tiger on the power mac bc it cant run leopard.
    and i have tiger on dvd. but i don't know how to share the dvd drive.
    or if making an iso of tiger on a hard drive and mounting on the power mac will work.

    please help.

    dvd sharing only works on leopard, as the macbook air, which it was designed for, comes with leopard

    i doubt you'll be able to install tiger onto a g4 by sharing

    The optical drive in your PowerMac is not working?

    Why can't your PowerMac run Leopard?
