10.4: Keep the old red Calendar widget from 10.4.3

The older widget should also be in one of the install packages from the Tiger install DVD. Also I believe in Tiger it is possible to unpack packages just using the built-in Tiger archive utility.
  1. Insert the DVD, open it with the Finder.
  2. Open the System folder. Inside the System folder you should see a folder named "Installation" and inside that one a folder called "Packages". Inside the Packages folder you should find a file called "AdditionalEssentials.pkg".
  3. Right-click it (or ctrl-click) and select "Show Package Contents".
  4. Once inside the package open the "Contents" folder and copy the "Archive.pax.gz" file to your Desktop, I also like to rename it to "AdditionalEssentials.pax.gz".
  5. Then double-click it on the Desktop. Tiger's Archive Utility will unzip it and unpack it and you will should see a folder called "AdditionalEssentials" (or if you left the name Archive.pax.gz the folder will be called "Archive").
  6. Inside this folder you should find folder called "Library" and inside Library you should find a folder called "Widgets", where the original Calendar should be present.
    I was using the DVD that came with my iBook. Of course this widget would be unpatched by any updates, and I don't know if that's a good idea... One of the "Combined 10.4.X Updates" may also have this widget.
Recap:
"Tiger DVD"/System/Installation/Packages/AdditionalEssentials/Contents/Archive.pax.gz
"Unpacked Archive.pax.gz"/Library/Widgets/Calendar"

-Petar edit: ( darn, wnorris was quicker...)
