Just to help you out, iBackup will work with Leopard and tiger, unlike Time Machine

Welcome to Mac-Forums!

Another suggestion - Archive & Install from the Tiger dvd. Tiger will overwrite the Lpd OS without affecting non-OS files. Once/if installation has occurred, give things a week or so to settle down, and if you're satisfied that the OS is stable and your applications are all working properly, you can delete the Previous System folder that will be created on A&I.

That said, I'd still backup - just in case! Good luck!
