My mother has a macbook from 2006 with Tiger. I bought a 15in MBP in 2007 right when leopard came out, and it came with an upgrade disc because the MBP had tiger preinstalled. I've since sold the MBP (for a newer 17in MBP), but still have the Leopard update disc. I've just upgraded to my 17in MBP to SL, and I bought the family pack.

Can I put the 10.5 disc that came with the 15in MBP into the 10.4 MB to update it to Leopard, and then update 10.5 to 10.6 using the family pack disc?

Can anyone provide a little more insight, or is that about it?

Is that 10.5 Upgrade disk grey/silver colored? If so...they are model specific...and since it was originally for a 2007 MBP...it may not work in an older MacBook from 2006.
