If you insert the Mac OSX (Leopard) Install DVD; the only thing you see is the WindowsSupport part of the DVD. If you want to access the OSX Install content of the DVD you need some extra tools.
  • download & install multipath-tools
    (http://christophe.varoqui.free.fr/)
    In a terminal as root
    • tar -xjf multipath-tools-0.4.8.tar.bz2
    • cd multipath-tools-0.4.8
    • make && make install
  • Map the dvd to a loop-device
    losetup /dev/loop0 /dev/sr0 (/dev/sr0
