Based on what you said, you appear to be full of vcrap. Anyone at  
anytime can and should make a copy of the install software to avoid  
using the original and keep it in good shape. There isn't any copy  
protection on Tiger and Apple even provides instruction on making a  
copy of it. You might want to go out and get a legitimate attitude.

Lanny, Apple uses a lot of Pioneer DVD drives and I usually buy from  
Other World Computing so I know that it works without the detective  
work. I am in no way connected to my uncle Larry at Other World.
