Hi.
I recently got a MacBook with 2.16GHz, 160GB HDD and 1GB RAM.
The Mac has a broken DVD drive, so I cannot install Mac OS X 10.5.
However, I wonder, as my PC has a broken CD Drive, I used to copy over the I386 directory from the CD on another computer to a thumb drive and then into the computer, can I like copy over files like that and install from the harddrive?

I can't afford that right now. My top priority is to get a DVI to VGA adapter. And I've already got a Mac OS X DVD.
Plus, my question was if I could start installing from within the computer without needing a DVD drive.

Sorry to bump, but, my USB drive isn't big enough...
