Hey all,

So I've exhausted just about every method of getting Tiger OSX back onto my MacBook. The DVD drive is busted, so I can't install from the originals, and my Mac-equipped friends refuse to let me use their systems to install via Target Disk Mode. I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 at the moment on it because that's the only OS I'm familiar with that works.

Rather than face what will probably be a costly repair, I'm wondering if I can run Target Disk Mode using a Ubuntu 10.04-equipped desktop as the host computer to install OSX? It has a Firewire 1394 port. If so, how would I go about it?
QUOTE Thanks
