    I've got the first generation 17" fp imac. A friend of mine has a Lime-iBook and has misplaced his jaguar CDs. Unfortunately, his 'book is all flubbed up, and he needs to resinstall 10.2. I was wondering... can I use MY software restore disks to reinstall 10.2 on his machine, or are the restore disks specifically formulated for my iMac and its hardware, and would only ruin his ibook (or refuse to install)?????

    Thanks in advance! :D

    They'll work as long as his iBook meets the requirements for Jaguar.

    The restore discs work for all Mac hardware models as long as they meet the minimum requirements (with the exception of the Power Mac G5 as it requires special restore discs).
