Thats kind of a waste there... Does it say how many CD's? That will 
show you the progress of growth 10.2 = 2 CD; 10.3 was = 3 CD, right.

I will be able to try that I have an external firewire CD burner, and I 
just ordered a Pioneer DVR-109 ($58.00 newegg)  that I am going to 
replace the old DVD-RAM drive with in the G4.... So I will have an 
extra DVD drive floating around that I could easily put in the firewire 
enclosure to do the tiger install on the iMac...

Thats always on option good old Firewire...

Still wish I could use the software and not have to lift a screw
