I assume this will be an available download or something over the internet? I am also nervous about anything that does not say "full retail version". Here is an offer that is tempting but not sure if is going to work- what do you think?

If you purchase 10.5.1 or 10.5.4...YES you will be able to update for free to 10.5.8 via Software Update.
NO...you do not want that "Restore Disk" you mentioned. You want a full install Retail version of 10.5...and like already mentioned...that's going to cost you at least $100 bucks (probably more) on eBay.
Hope this helps,
