Hello,
I have a powerbook G4 that I bought off of someone last year, and I went to reformat the computer, but I cannot find my office 2004 CD... I'm trying to get office 2008 to load instead but I keep getting a message saying I need 10.4.9 or higher... is there an update I need or can I not run 2008 on my powerbook?
