Without the software disks you can't recover from the simplest of problems.
I would not consider this.
I am new to the mac world, and now own a scanner that will only work with 10.3 panther and below. I am looking to buy a g5 with 2 hard drives to run leopard and panther. the seller states that leopard and a few apps are loaded on both hard drives the same. no software disks are included with the sale.
Can anyone tell me if leopard and apps are loaded as backups on the 2nd drive? can i delete off the 2nd drive and load panther, and still retain leopard/apps on first drive?
