I was recently given a Power Mac G5 (PPC) by a friend of mine to be able to use for our multimedia business. The PPC came loaded with Mac OS X Tiger 10.4.1.  Now my first dilemma was that when I went to install Logic 8 on the system I recieved an error message that "this version of logic requires a minimum of pro application update 4.0 and prokit version whatever" either way it didnt work.  I wasn't really bothered by this at first until I realised that finding pro application update 4.0 would be about as hard as finding waldo.  Eventually after hours of looking I located the update on of all places the Apple site I initially started searching on all to find out Tiger 10.4.1 does not meet the minimum requirements to install this update.  So I came to the conclusion updating my OS to Leopard 10.5.8 would be the best possible outcome and hopefully meet the minimum requirements to run Logic 8.  My friend just happened to have a .dmg file  from his previous installation of OS X Leopard 10.5.8 on his other PPC which I had to burn to a disc (using THIS PPC) in order to be able to boot.  Which brings me to where Im at right now.  I cant get the disc to boot no matter what I try.  Please help!
