I know you are able to share files from one mac to another via firewire cable... but what I'm wondering is if its possible to transfer software from a mac to another. For example... would I be able to copy programs like Photoshop, InDesign etc. from a friends mac to my mac? I would really like these programs for school but he does not have the disks (and before you ask the software is not pirated), but is willing to share with me... I have no idea how to go about doing this though.

any help is appreciated.

Besides, if he shares with you, then you have pirated software.
