    Hey guys,

    I'm trying to install snow leopard over tiger.
    Help me with this question as I present my situation:

    I managed to get ahold of a .DMG of Snow Leopard build 10A432.

    I also managed to access the hidden folder "System" by pressing
    Apple+Shift+G and typing "system/installation/packages."

    I then deleted all the unnecessary printer driver package files and the VISIBLE Optional Installs folder.

    I noticed the structure of the library subfolder of the HIDDEN system folder in the snow leopard dmg slightly echoes that in the VISIBLE system folder of Tiger, which can be accessed by searching hard drive name>system>library.

    I'm a complete noob, so bare with me as I ask:
    Is it possible to simply copy the HIDDEN library subfolder from the snow leopard dmg to the VISIBLE system folder of Tiger (which is at HDD>system>library?

    If anyone has some insight, thanks. Much appreciated!

    Either this (officially) or that (unofficially, but still working).

    Pop it into the DVD drive and there you go.
