can you force and upgrade like if i have a 10.5 mac osx disc and i would need a faster proc. because it's only a G4 400 something MHZ and i will need something in the 600 MHZ range. so i am wondering if i can force the machine to install the upgrade anyway or is this just not possible?? or will the os just not work if i do find a way to do it?

ok well i guess that i don't have to do this any more because my friend is selling it to buy a newer one anyways and i;m not even sure if it is very possible either.

Do you mean get around the fact that you can only install Leopard on machines with 867 MHz or faster?

It's actually very simple to get around. You just need to boot the computer using "Open Firmware" and type in a couple commands.

You could also just download a program called Leopard Assist and it automates it for you!

Here is a link to the program: http://mac.profusehost.net/leopardassist/

Hope that helps!
