Purchase Snow Leopard.

iLife 11 requires 10.6.3 minimum.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

No you can just do an upgrade install. It will keep all your things on there. You may need to upgrade other software or drivers if they're not already Snow Leopard compatible.
