I just quit and restarted i-Installer and it seemed to work fine with  
the proper version. Installed on my PowerBook (10.4.8, PPC).

I wish there was a way to turn off the Unsupported Software warning  
message. A check-box in the Preferences would require active  
participation and a tacit understanding of the statement.

Good Luck,
