I do have the retail 5 user family licensed pack, but I noticed it does not mention on it that you have to have an intel processor, it only mentions PPC processors. That is what lead me to believe the 5 user family pack is for PPC machines only.

I do have the gray discs for my 2 mini's, 1 MB and 1 MP disc. The MP disc says it is for a MP, but I'm wondering if there are differences between the Quad core and 8 core machines as far as the disks are concerned?
