    Install stuck on "please load disc 2" screen.
    whats up guys, i am having a blood pressure rising problem. i have a macbook black edition 2.0 ghz duo 2 core proc. i tried to reboot the comp with the install disc so i chose the option erase and install and the first disc completes fine but disc 2 is where the problem starts. it wont get passed the iwork 08. it says please try the install again. i tried every boot up key commands but nothing works, it just brings me back to the "please load disc 2" screen. ive tried the disc numerous times but it never works. i took the disc to my local game store cause they have a disc cleaning machine and they took all the little scratches out but it still doesnt work. does anyone know how i can get my comp to start up without the "load disc 2" screen appear? it brings me straight to that screen no matter what i do. any imput is greatly appreciated thanks guys.

    p.s its mac os x 10.4 if i didnt mention

    Since when does the Mac OS X installer prompt for an iWork disc?
    There is no system but GNU and Linux is one of its kernels.

    What kind of install discs are these? I've only ever used the black retail install discs, which just install the operating system and the basic programs it comes with. Can you customize the install? It usually gives you options to turn things off, so maybe you should disable iWork and try installing it manually later (if you want it).
