RKight is on a distinguished road

I was able to run the installer straight off the disc just fine in order to upgrade my existing os 8.6 installation. I just wasn't able to boot off the disc so I could format the drive and do a fresh install. I would love to copy everything to a thumb drive but I read somewhere that the tray-loading iMacs aren't capable of booting from USB. I might try anyway. I could always use devalias in OF to redirect the CD alias to point to my thumb drive and attempt to boot that way. I tried it with an external CD drive but I know for a fact that drive doesn't work with my cousin's intel-based MacBook Pro so it may be worth a shot with a thumb drive or different external CD drive.
