Thanks to Pigoo3 and Razoredge. The 'back up' is what I'm now not sure of. I have a 500 gb external hard drive; so if I start up the external drive an I con will appear on the screen and then when I click the icon a window opens to show me what it contains . . . . if I click on, say, the iPhotos icon and drag/drop it into the ext drive window, will that be the back up and if so, do I then reverse the procedure once Leopard is loaded into my iMac. Similarly, do I do that with Pages, Word Excel etc. Also, how about my password for Apple updates and what must I be sure to back up and how to do it ? Sorry to be dim on this but I gotta learn and I'm convinced that you guys know best from experience. I'm quite nervous about doing this so all help is really very much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
