I've had an EMac G4 desktop for a few years now, and the OS i'm running is 10.2.8 lame, i know....
I've recently gotten my first ipod.
The problem..... the ipod I got is only compatible with 10.3.4 and higher.
Is there ANY WAY POSSIBLE I can get tiger or even panther somewhere without having to shell out 100+ at a mac store? (You, see, I am a poor college student and 100 dollars is a hell of a lot.)
Thanks in advance for your help,
you can get a student discount at apple.com or find a person with an OS update disc...

Learn how to use torrent file sharing.
firstly: walk into your mac store and explain your situation. beg. can you tear up at will? they are allowed to perform amazing feats of goodwill in the interest of customer service and handing you a disc for 10.3 or 10.4 would clearly fall into such catagories. if the people at your local apple store don't seem to have the iMas spirit, go to another or...
there's always friends and limewire.
contact me if you don't succeed.
Don't rely on limewire. Learn to use torrent file sharing. It's not only a great source of all sorts of digital goodies, but it's also a community of people who have the same ambitions and problems as you do--and usually the solutions to your dilemmas if you're willing to look and read.
I've never used Limewire though, but I don't trust that garbage ever since Kazaa, morpheus, you get the picture. Then again, I don't even use windows anymore so...
Dawg, I love limewire.
But yeah, torrents, its a new thing to me... I just got Tiger this morning and everything is so much more beautiful. I love it.
