    installing snow leopard while on tiger
    I have a '07 macbook with 10.4.11. I want to install snow leopard but do not know if it meets the system requirments. I am afraid that the dvd will not install and say it requires 10.5 to run. Is this true? Or will it upgrade properly. Thanks!

    You can't use the $29 Snow Leopard edition. You have to buy the more expensive version that will get you from Tiger to Snow Leopard. Remember, the rest of us bought Leopard, so you have to too.

    i thought it just didn't have the upgrade service for tiger, but it would work if you did a clean install. (check this, as you don't want to wipe you computer clean if its not going to work)
