may be a bit of overkill

My understanding is that Intel macs will boot from APM and GUID, PPC only boots from APM. However, the installer disk will not install to APM drives from an Intel Mac.

My testing bears this out. And DAMN useful it is!

The other major benefit is that if you're having problems with the DVD mounting as I and MANY other people seem to be having then it's the quickest and easiest way around the problem (of course, it assumes you can mount the DVD on at least one of your machines).
