    Yes. Buy a Leopard install disc. Make sure it is the black retail DVD and not a silver grey model specific issue. It will only cost about $125.00.
    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!

    You do not need a DL player. The DL disc will be able to be read on any DVD reader. You only need the DL option for burning DL discs.
