I have an upgrade CD from a new iMac... Can I use it to throw 10.2 on my iBook 500?

Found this somewhere:

1.Insert your MacOS X 10.2 Update CD
2.Fire up "Disk Copy" from /Applications/
Utilities
3.Select from the Menubar "Image | New
Image from Device..."
4.Select your CD-ROM drive's contents
from the resulting dialog
5.Image it as a "DVD/CD Master" type
(this will take a little while)

Modifying the CD contents
1.Control-click (or right-click) on the
resulting disk image
2.See that it's mounted
3.Navigate with the Finder to System/
Installation/Packages on mounted image
4.Select the "Essentials.pkg" file...
5....by right-clicking on it and select "Show
Package Contents"
6.In the pop-up Finder window, navigate
to Contents/Resources/
7.Drag "CheckForOSX" to the Trash and
close all these Finder windows

Burning your new Install CD
1.Go back to Disk Copy and select from
the Menubar "Image | New Image from
Device..."
2.Select the mounted volume you opened
up above and make another "DVD/CD
Master" image
3.Now select from the Menubar "Image |
Burn Image..."
4.Select your newly modified .dmg file
5.Burn it to CD and enjoy

regards

I'm not the one doing the violating. He asked the question, I answered in the affirmative, and I didn't tell him how to do it or make his upgrade disc into a full-install disc. It's not like he's asking where to find child porn.

i was not saying you were the one doing the violating - i was appending the bit about it to your reply to the original poster.

sure, maybe it's not as bad as kiddy porn, but piracy is a *huge* problem and at very least it should be pointed out to those that are asking about doing it.

agreed. piracy is bad. if he's a student, he can get it for cheap. best to have your own copy. the way you quoted my post and commented made me feel singled out. no harm, no foul.
