Currently Being ModeratedAug 2, 2008 8:16 AM (in response to sdavison78)Thanks for the tips, Niel and WWJD! I have just learned from another source that OS 10.4 is also available on a 4-CD set. Is there any way I can get this set? I'd be happy to exchange the one DVD for the set, as apparently this would solve all problems without the need to invest in new drives.

Currently Being ModeratedAug 2, 2008 12:58 PM (in response to Niel)A lot of people seem to be thinking just the way you are. But the way they have been going on eBay, you often pay more than US$60 more for the 5-CD set than for the DVD. That will buy you the DVD drive twice over.Beige G3,G3 B+W,G4/867,G4/MDD, Mac OS 8.6 or Earlier, and 9.2, 10.4 and Server - LW IIg, LW 4/600, ATalk ImageWriter LQ
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 14, 2009 9:05 PM (in response to sdavison78)We finally located a set of four CDs of OS 10.4.6 which installed easily and correctly, and from that via downloads from the Apple sit we were able to bring the OS up to 10.4.11. Thanks to all for suggestions!
