I just got a mac book with a broken dvd drive.(for free. just had to replace the power supply.)
I would like to format the hdd. I have an external dvd burner. I have osx 6.3 on disc(that is borrowed from a friend.) The mb i am using has os x 5.8.

I am wondering if anybody see's any issues with me formatting in my situation? Or any suggested links tuts or threads?
