    Boot Camp question
    I have a really random question. Can I use Boot Camp to install an older version of Mac OS X as opposed to a Windows OS? Would the process be the same? Thanks in advance.

    Boot Camp is geared toward installing Windows. It will format the partition in FAT32 and modify the EFI for Windows compatibility. I'm sure there's a way to dual-boot different versions of OS X, but Boot Camp is not it.

    Keep in mind that 10.4 is the only other version of OS X that is Intel compatible (aside from Leopard). Also note that 10.4 was never offered in a retail package, so you'd need an Intel Mac that came with 10.4 originally and also a separate, retail copy of 10.5.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
