Mac OS X 10.5, or Leopard, comes with the same utility program every Mac since 10.3 has come with, Disk Utility. This powerful program allows users to not only create a dmg copy of a system disk, but it also allows them to burn it. The burnt copy of OS X 10.5 will be bootable, just like the original system disk, so it is the perfect way to back up Leopard for your Mac.
