Normally (and by that I mean never) I don't ask for free stuff. But I am wondering if anybody has an extra OS X Tiger disc laying around that I could have... I'd even send it back if you want. I can't seem to find mine, and really need to reinstall Tiger on my iMac. Thanks in advance.

You may want to specify which iMac you have, since there are several Tiger discs out there.

Retail Tiger will not install on an x86 iMac.
Retail Tiger 10.4.0 may not work if your PPC iMac needs a 10.4.6 Retail disc.
Intel iMac Tiger (OEM) will not install on an iMac G4 or G5.
An iMac G4 Tiger OEM disc will probably not work on a G5 iMac.

Well I got my iMac to work properly, but if anybody has an extra that they don't need, I'd still take that. I'm going to have to reinstall Tiger on my PowerBook at some point, so it'd be nice to have one. Forgot to mention that I'll happily pay for shipping as well.

It's an iMac G5, rev. A, so any retail version of Tiger would work.
