    Hey guys, this may be a silly question but here goes. I bought my MBP back around 01/17/2008. It came with Tiger installed and iLife. A few weeks ago, I decided I'd install Leopard, whose dvd came packaged with my MBP. Now that I finally want to use iLife, I notice that it's not installed anymore. I was looking for an iLife DVD in my MBP box last night but didn't see anything. Where is it? Is iLife on the Leopard DVD as an optional install or something?

    TIA!

    I dont think ilife is included with the leopard CD, it comes pre-installed on new computers with leopard already on them.

    indeed.

    iLife is not a part of Leopard, so if you did an archive & install or a format and install iLife would not be there any longer.

    Well, I mean can I install it separately off of the Tiger disks onto my Leopard install. Can I install it without having to install Tiger is what I'd like to know.

    Yes, you should be able to install it from the reinstall discs that came with your computer (without having to re-install Tiger, in case there was any confusion)
