i recently deleted python to try and install a different version due to compatibility issues with other software. this turned out to be a bad idea and i need to restore the version of python that came with 10.4. from other forums, it seems that the only way to do this is by restoring the OS. But, my dvd drive is also messed up because dvd drives on mac laptops ALWAYS mess up for me. i should get it replaced, but i use my coputer for work so this is difficult. i tried booting as a target disc and using my os install disc from another computer, but apparently this isn't allowed.

[fuming]

is there any reasonable way to restore python without having to reinstall the os or send my computer off to get a working dvd drive (that will probably fail again in a few months just like the others)?

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
