Requires a G5 or Intel

iMovie 08 and 09 both require a G5 or Intel processor. You'll need to track down a copy of iLife 06 and install *only iMovie* from there.

Custom install

As you go through the installer, watch for a button that says "Customize." Click that and uncheck all the boxes except iMovie.
