Welcome to MyDellMini!

The Mac OS disk that came with your old mac will not work... you need a retail copy of OSX

how about one of the snow leopard discs ?

failing that just a standard leopard disc i can get from the apple store

how do i go about installing this.

the USB method looks so easy pity it wasn't a runcore..

i can get a usb dvd drive if need be. but is there a usb method? ive used unetbootin for a couple of diffrent linux distros maybe somthing similar?
