    I recently just purchased my first real Mac (currently running Snow Leopard on an Intel Core 2 Duo machine), an iBook G3, white "macbook" style version. The owner left all of his programs on the computer. He included the original Tiger install discs/boxes, but not the iLife disc, which was loaded on the computer. I know this is possible on "real" Macs, but what would you suggest cloning an iBook G3's HDD that doesn't have USB 2.0 to a fake hackintosh laptop? Network transfer? The only reason why I want to do this is to try out older Mac OS X versions to see which one runs best on it, but still keeping the old HDD intact. Details of laptop specs and iBook G3 specs are included below.
