Hi Guys,

Need your urgent advice! My powerbook 12" needed a new HD - my original Panther DVD's are damaged and no longer usable. Someone told me that I can use install/restore disks from any other mac and these should work. Ive found some Emac Install/Restore DVD's on ebay but have yet to bid on them as I just need to know that they will actually be OK to reinstall panther on my powerbook. anyone able to confirm this for me? Thanks!

I don't know for sure, but I don't you will be able to get a complete OS load. I believe the eMac load only has the software needed for the eMac. Someone else will verify this.
