    im currently on mac os 10.3.9 and i wanna go up to 10.4
    is it possible to use my mates 10.4 installation disk for my mac?
    and if i do upgrade do all my files stay where they are or is it all wiped?

    Yo man, u and I are in the same boat. But this is what you NEED TO DO!!! READ EVERYTHING CAREFULLY SO AS NOT TO MESS UP!!!
    Ask your mate what type of comp he has... if he has an intel and you dont, the disk wont work... if he has a macbook and you dont, the disks wont work. Only if your computers are both the same TYPE (Intel, Macbook, PowerPC, G2, G3 etc) will the disks work!!! Also compare the requirements for 10.4.0 on apple.com w/ those on your comp... good luck!

    PS: If you put in the disk and it takes you to this really funky page that gives you all of these errors, turn off the comp, then turn back on WHILE HOLDING DOWN THE MOUSE BUTTON (or the left button if u have a windows-type mouse)!!! THis will eject the disk and you can go find a mate w/ a disk that is compatible w/ your comp.:apple:
