Someone may know a secret method, but as far as I'm concerned, it really cannot be done. My friend tried burning it for me (before I got my copy, of course), and it did not boot up. Perhaps Apple put some sort of copyright protection on the disc to keep this kind of activity from happening.

Making a boot CD can definitely be done, and you can find out how in that thread. Drive10 won't work out of the box with the script I posted on that site, but I have made a new discovery, and will post a new message in that thread when I hear back from my testers. In the meantime you can see what we've done toward this end so far.

You will need Toast 5. There is an option for a bootable cd.

You do *not* need Toast 5 at all. Disk Copy can burn a bootable CD quite well, as long as you prepare your image correctly. I have made many bootable CD's, and I don't have Toast 5.
