OK...I'm still new to OS X. I have only had my mini for about a month now, and I'M LOVING IT! Now for my question.
I'm a Paramedic and I also set up and maintain our network at our station. Since I have had my mini, I have noticed how nice it is and how easy it is to work with. With the new release of Tiger coming up, I was wondering if it is possible to install tiger on a PC computer.
What I mean is to deleate XP off of them and install OS X. I have no idea if this is able to happen, but if it is, I'm almost positive that I will be working with Macs all the time!
Thank you for your help!

Unfortunately no. If you have PCs at work you can not install OS X. Intel and Apple machines use different hardware architechture.

No it is not possible to install Tiger or any other version of Mac OS on an X86 based system. Sorry.

EDIT: Too slow... :p
