    Ahh vansmith where would one think? From a pal or pirate organisation?
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    I have a suggestion .... in fact I have the only viable solution available for you.

    Get an official, legitimate copy of Snow Leopard and install from the original, legitimate, paid for disks.

    Easy.
