Or divide the disk image
Authored by: john1620b on May 10, '05 03:32:18PM
An easier way (in my opinion) is to make a disk image of the DVD (of course, you need a DVD-capable machine to do that) and use DMGscissor to divide it up into pieces you can burn onto CD-R's. Why give Apple $10 when you can do it yourself?

How do we know what the Tiger installer will expect to see on each installer volume, i.e. how can we partition the installation materials into CD-ROM volumes, without knowing exactly how Apple has arranged them?

I doubt that would work because they have to tweak the installer for the CD version.

Tried it. Doesn't work, won't boot off the disk.

Sorry -- guess it was too idealistic of an answer.
