Hello all Smile


I've had my mac mini for about 6months now and I'm chaning it to tiger when the DVD arives tomorrow hopefully and I just wanted to ask if I need any drivers like I would with windows or should I simply have to install it and thats that?

My iLife software is in the mini box still and I've not added any other software to it so will the only additional software be that?


Thanx for anyhelp!

Just install it and let it roar. You don't have any special 3rd-party drivers loaded on top of your current configuration do you? If not, don't worry about it.
