You did an amazing job! Great videos. but I do have a question and I think it would be a good video idea (because I can't find it anywhere)

After I upgrade my HD what do I do? I don't want to clone my HD I want a full new clean install.

Hmmm - I could do that guide.

You would need to install your new hdd, insert the software OSX DVD, hold c down when booting (so it boots from DVD drive) the select fresh install. Job done!

I'll try and sort out a step by step vid guide.

I have just bought a new 13" MBP 2.26 GHz and 2 GB memory and was thinking of upgrading the hdd to 320 or 500 GB and memory up to 4 GB, before i start to put all my music, movies and files on.
This is all i have to do once the hdd and memory are installed?
Loving my MBP. Totally new to Macs so please forgive this new members question.

Yes because with the new HDD there is nothing on it. Technically you need to format the HDD first and then you can install the OS.
