A few years ago I bought the retail edition of Tiger DVD (and thus possess a valid license , and the DVD ) .
Now I need to reuse a G3 iBook does not have a DVD player ( and lacks firewire ) with tiger .
In this regard, let me know if you can request a copy of the apple cd to install tiger , or from the installation DVD classic you can get disk images from CDs unsando remaster some stratagem , or someone can send pictures via wetranfer or similar .
Since I used a translation program , chedi apologize for any errors or inappropriate expressions.
Tank you very much.

Ibook G3, clamshell, Mac OS X (10.4)

The Tiger on CDs was a very rare bird, only available for a short time in an exchange from Apple, I doubt Apple gas any Tiger Discs at all.

Also, there is no way to convert the DVD to CDs. They look like this...

But one of the requirements for Installing IS Firewire...

A PowerPC G3, G4, or G5 processor
- Built-in FireWire
- At least 256 MB of RAM (512 MB or 1 GB recommended)
- At least 3 GB of available hard disk space; 4 GB of disk space including the Xcode 2 Tools
- CD or DVD drive for installation

XPostFacto may get around that...
