Alright so I'll get the apologizing out of the way now as i ran a couple of searches but didn't find any answers and I'm new to macs for the most part.
Anyways I recently bought a macbook the 2.4ghz 160gb etc. On the box it said iLife included and now that its up and running I have a most of the iLife components (iPhoto, iMovie,iDVD) but am missing iWeb and Garage Band. Any ideas? Thanks

I have the same model, and they're fine for me. On the menu bar at the top on the far right, there's a magnifying glass icon. If you click on that and search 'Garage' you should find it. Once it loads, an icon will appear in the dock at the bottom. You can set this to stay permanently in the dock if you want. Same for iWeb - which I haven't touched yet...

Put Disc 1 of the restore disks into your computer while its running and select install bundled software only and then choose to install just the ilife components that you need.

If you call Apple with a problem like that, they might actually replace iLife for free. That's what they did for me when it came with a defect.

iLife is included with the System Discs. Your system should have shipped with 2 gray discs. These contain both the OS (Leopard) and iLife in addition to certain utilities and drivers for Boot Camp. If you didn't receive these discs, you'll definitely want to check with the seller as you'll need them at some point down the road.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

I only received one disk with a backup for Leopard on it. Should I do anything about it?

Absolutely - you should have the System Discs it came from the factory with. If the seller didn't disclaim them as part of the sale terms, they need to make good on them.
