I have an older iMac I am trying to install Panther on but I ran into a little problem. The CD rom drive is busted and there are no firewire ports. I have a usb hard drive enclosure, and I am wondering if there is some way that I can install Panther on the iMac's hard drive when it's in the usb enclosure, and the pop it back into the iMac?? I know this is possible if there was firewire access, but is it possible to install Panther to a USB hard drive???
