Press C when booting and hold it until it starts from the cd/dvd. Then a window should appear asking you to chose language etc.

Megatron wants your macintosh.

install things???

I assume you are talking about installing applications....

See this thread.

Go down to the 4th post and read thru - need to look at the pics also....

Will be the same if installing from a disk... if the disk is not showing up on your desktop after you insert it - open a Finder window, then click on Finder in the menu bar, then click on Preferences - under "Show these items on the Desktop:", put a check next to CDs, DVDs and iPods

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

You might consider heading over to your local Apple Store. Undoubtedly some of the training courses there would be worth your investment. And they'll be able to help get your printer and tablet working too.
