Ahh. That's it. Forgot the progression of Apps. That Tiger disk must have been sitting for a while. I'll need to find another disk - somewhere.

Doh.

My Mac won't recognize the Tiger Disk.

If I simply try to install, I am told I cannot install on this Mac. I have OS 10.6.8 in stalled. Is there an issue because my installed OS is newer??
