Only way you're going to get your hands on that, I'm afraid, is by buying a copy - eBay would be your best shout.

Software piracy is a big no-no here. Sorry.

Edit - Are you already running 10.5? If so you can download 10.5.8 from Apple, here: http://support.apple.com/downloads/M..._10_5_8_Update

Lion is the first and so far only Mac OS version available as a (legal) download.

Take it you mean a 1.5GHz processor with 1GB memory? If so it will run Leopard, but increase your memory to say 2GB. When you go to eBay and such make sure you buy a black full retail install DVD and not a silver grey model specific disc which will not install.

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!

...and the first person to suggest an illegal method of obtaining Leopard gets to see the business end of my ban hammer

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
