> I agree with Ben, that regression is not important. I did finally succeed in installing Leopard on an “external” drive connected as USB hard disk. The installer warned that this disk would not be bootable and when it finished reported that it could not make the disk bootable. G5 and earlier seem not able to boot from USB anyway. When I attached the resulting disk as IDE device, it would not boot. The reverse also didnt work. Connecting the dvd image as usb drive didn’t allow boot. 

Okay in that case I consider myself overruled ;)  Will carry on testing
this evening...
