Apple releases migration and DVD/CD sharing update
Apple just released a Migration and DVD/CD Sharing Update (kbase article: HT3174) for all users via Software Update. The download includes Remote Install Mac OS X v.1.1 which:

provides enhanced customization capabilities and improved performance for migration over FireWire, Ethernet and wireless networks.

The update was specifically released to address the MacBook (Late 2008) - which lost Firewire and the MacBook Pro (Late 2008).

This update includes the previously released DVD or CD Sharing Setup Update 1.0 software to allow the computer it is installed on to act as an optical drive "host" for MacBook Air computers.

The update installs:

  • Migration Assistant 1.2.3
  • Mac OS X Remote Install 1.1 (located in /Applications/Utilities)
  • DVD or CD Sharing (located in the Sharing System preferences panel)

I posted a gallery of running the Remote Install Mac OS X application.
