Is your friends Mac a Macbook or iBook? Is his a new machine or did he buy it used?

Sorry - Mac OS X Install discs are system-specific. That means your pals iBook disc won't work with an eMac.

It's even more complicated if your friend has a MacBook, not an iBook. iBooks and eMacs had PowerPC processors. MacBooks and all the new Macs have Intel ones, they use different programming languages or something.

You should buy a Mac OS X Install Disc from Apple. They work with all PowerPC Macs.
