To my knowledge if the DVD comes with you're friends IMAc you can only use it on that IMAC .
If you like to upgrade a other Mac just buy a install DVD from the APPLE store or from a Apple retailer .

No free way. Snow Leopard costs $29 USD direct from Apple

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

It really ain't that dear!

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
