Does anyone have a set of OS X 10.4 Tiger cds
...that you're not using anymore? A friend gave me an old 600mhz "bubble butt" iMac from 2001, it runs ok on a lot of stuf but most streaming web content it just won't play on Panther, I have to update it to tiger or it's never going to run it

I've got Tiger on DVDs but this machine has a cdr drive only, no DVD support :(

Everywhere I've founf the tiger cds online somebody wants an outrageous sum for them :(

I'd be happy to pay a fair price and shipping

thanks! :)

1. Can you copy DVD to usb flash and use the usb to boot?
Or copy DVD to external usb hard drive and boot from that?

Maybe this helps:
