    Hard drive replacement........
    I have called a few shops to find out the cost of labour for replacing my hard drive. They have quoted me two prices, one price for just replacing the drive and another price for data transfer from the old drive.

    My question is, if I was just to pay for the labourn and to reinstall the OS myself onto the new empty hard drive, would this just require me putting in the Mac OS X dvd? Or is it more complicated? Forgive me as I have never done this before and just wanted to know if it would be difficult.


    I'm excited b/c I will be installing leopard!

    You just have to put the disc in the drive and follow the instructions, yes.
