You will be lucky if you can get your hands on a copy. Best option is e-bay and craigslist. Just be sure you get the black retail disc and not a grey one. Grey is machine-specific and won't work on any Mac other than the one it shipped with.
Expect to pay upwards of $125 USD.

Reminder: Please include your Mac's specs. This will make it much easier for the other members to assist you.

Because 10.5 is an entire OS, wheras the .1, .2 etc, are just incremental updates to that OS.

Yes, you can, though Apple say not, you can buy Snow Leopard (10.6) and do a full install.
I am not sure if you can go from Tiger to Lion the same way, but you can to SL no problem.
Cheapest option to be honest.

I ordered the 10.6 because I need it to get the 10.7, 10.5 is too expensive and not needed to move forward. Thank you for all your help Kevriano!
