Well, well, well.
it now seems like a lot of fuss over nothing.

I put the 10.6 disc in. Clicked the full install button. Took a couple of hours. Installed 10.6 - and kept everything! Didn't even have to install FCE and Word. They were already there for me, full of my current projects. Even the trash bin has it's old contents! (Must remember to take out the trash)
Updated to 10.6.8 and everything seems to be running perfectly.
(Except Safari is a bit wild and carefree and slow)
Unbelievably easy!

Thanks for all the help and advice from you all.
I wouldn't have done it without you.
Best regards, CB

Edited to add: Swapped from Safari to Chrome and it's all running nice and sweet.
