pas_de_deux is on a distinguished road

I've managed to totally screw myself over, to be frank. I've been having problems with safari - I fear this may because my macs getting on a bit (four happy years, tiger osx10.4) rather than safari mind..

I decided to delete safari and then reinstall. The trouble is, when installing the updater says that a newer version of safari is still on my hardrive and so it can't install. It definitely isn't, and I'm installing the newest version. I have nooo idea where my install discs are, as it has been four years, so don;t think I'll be able to do it that way. I still have firefox, but words cannot descibe how much I HATE firefox. I love safari and am pretty gutted to have lost it so if anyone has any ideas I would really appreciate hearing from you.

Also, I'm a bit of a mac dummy (I use it for music related things and so troubleshooting isn't my thing :/) so step-by-step instructions very much appreciated!

Go to /Library/Receipts and see if there is one for Safari. If so, delete it and then try to install.
