RE: Mac OS X Leopard (Re: new problem)

Isn't there a way to virtualized Tiger under Leopard? 

I know with Windows (Vista, XP Pro, etc.) I can use VMWare to run any OS
that will run on a Wintel/WinAMD box, including legacy versions of DOS,
Windows, as well as any Linux flavor of the month and x86 versions of
Solaris. Most of the time with full hardware compatibility and full fault
tolerance preventing crashes of the Host OS.

Well, you're up on it all and as said earlier, the update for the  
Leopard OS is coming soon and it'll be BIG.
I'm somewhat fearful of installing it as well for my Imacon scanner  
might not work and that, well, that will
be a hole in my pocket and tears in my eyes.
Hope it will come to a sweet and perfect finale for you.
