Using a 15/17" install disk

I have searched hi and low and can only find my daughter's 15/17" PowerBook install disk for 10.4. 'Course it won't let me install on my 12" PowerBook. Is there a way to use it? My daughter is on the east coast and I live in New Mexico so using her computer is not an option.

Sorry but no. You will have to buy the specific installation disk for your PowerBook off ebay or a Tiger retail disk.

N.B.: You could also install Leopard on your PB model. Just make sure that you ram is maximised.

Sorry to say, but you need the original disk for your computer, or, install Leopard on your PowerBook. You can find Leopard on eBay, Amazon, Apple Store, RapidShare, MegaUpload. I don't recommend torrents, so dont get it there.

I have the family pack for Leopard (10.5) but read somewhere and on this site that the G4's, while they can run it, fair better running Tiger (10.4). I have the 1.33 GHz PB (1,256M ram) which is running 10.5 and a 1.2 GHz iBook (768M ram) running 10.3 (I've used my emegency start up drive with 10.5 on it on the iBook so I know that will work). I was simply wanting to down grade back to a 'faster' system. Thanks everyone for the answers. It was what I was expecting. I wonder if the Ex is holding those disks as hostages for later bargaining....
