    How do I burn a bootable dmg file to disc in OSX

    think of the .dmg as an iso file, it will need to be burn to a dual layer dvd (if full version of Leapard) so yes use toast and ¨burn image¨ option

    Where did you get your copy of leopard from as if you brought it it should be on a disc. If you downloaded it then shame on you and you should not be asking here about using illegal software.

    hmmm, don't really think you should be having a go at someone who's simply explaining the forums stance on pirate software

    Re: Leopard .dmg INSTALL HELP

    I think i gave a reasonable solution to your problem. You requested a free app to burn dmgs and i stated that Disk utility will do just that and it comes with the OS

    its quite normal to ask for more information regarding a problem, so as to allow people to help.

    As Richard only asked where the software was from and you've since ignored it, I think it is quite reasonable to assume its been illegally downloaded, correct me if I'm wrong.

    as this is a forum for educational technicians support, this goes against what schools and colleges should be practicing.

    Re: Leopard .dmg INSTALL HELP

    I posted what was in my opinion a valid question. As the software comes a disc and you were asking about burning an image which is usually downloaded illegally. If this was raised on other forums I frequent the thread would have at the very least been loocked by the Admins or you could have been kicked from the site.

    As Domino rightly states this is a forum for educational technicians support and therefore we have standards to maintain particularly as as several software companies have representatives on the site as well as people like BECTA and local education authorities.
