I have a 800mhz eMac I'm giving away. I'm pretty sure I saw a application that allows for tiger etc to be installed onto a mac thats below system requirements.

Is it worth it or no? Does anyone know of this application?

Thanks for the help.

Tiger will install fine on your eMac, as it meets the requirements.
Leopard wouldn't.

When all else fails, try everything!

You mean Leopard, right? Tiger will work on the eMac as is.

I've seen Leopard work first hand on an 800MHz iBook and it wasn't pretty. I would stick with Tiger. Sometimes, recommended specs are a good thing.
