    Default Install Mac OS X on a Mac Mini w/o use of DVD?

    ok, heres my situation.

    I have a Mac Mini, 1.83 Ghz, intel core 2 duo, with 2 Gigs of ram..

    I want to run ATV4Mac (apple tv for mac)
    Which requires me to downgrade to Tiger, well i don't exactly want to dowgrade the entire machine, so i partitioned the drive into 2 slices, one for leopard, which im currently running, and one for the tiger installation..

    I have the Tiger for into ISO on my MacBook pro, but i dont have any spare blank DVD's laying around. Is there any way i can "mount" this iso on a External hard drive, and a iPod in disk mode? Then hold in the option key during startup, and go from there?

    Also, i was wondering if it was possible to use remote install OS X on computers other than the MacBook Air?

    Thanks Guys.

    M'afraid that most of the procedures above are either next-to-impossible, costly, or not worth the fuss than just to buy a DVD±R...

    Well, if you have a hard drive, I guess you can partition it, and restore the iso onto it, but it's still a lot better just to pop down the street for a DVD...
