    I recently have recieved an ibook with osx 10.3.9 that doesnt have any wireless internet. Since i have a wireless adapter, i decided to install it on so i can use this computer for internet. Since the driver for the installer is only for newer osx versions i decided to upgrade my os. I knew that my cd-rw/dvd-rom drive isnt working so i booted disk1 of the cd-installation from my old ipod. Now it wants disk 2 and when i put in my ipod with the second disk it wont continue installation.

    right idea, but wrong install media. i've never found a way to defeat the 'next cd' thing when not actually using the cds.

    you need to get your hands on the tiger dvd and put that on the ipod so it won't stop to ask for the next disc. hope the old ipod is new enough to have enough room! best of luck.

    how would i do that. the computer is in the middle of installation. Is there any manual way to stop installation once it has started- it wont give me the option.
