I recently lost the CD and I am stuck in a situation where I need to upgrade to Snow Leopard ....w/o a disc. Can this be done? I have the .DMG file but I can seem to mount it so that the installion wizard ( for lack of a better name ) still needs a disc to install. Can I use Daemon tools or virtual drives to make this installation happen?

    Not sure about your question - you lost your original install disk? Where/how did you get a .dmg of an OS or did you purchase SL on a disk? If not, you will need to purchase Snow Leopard for about $20, available at Apple or other resellers.
