What is bouncing. You cant launch Rosetta on its own, it only kicks in when you launch a PowerPC only app on an Intel Mac

Agreed with Louis. Are you trying to run Rosetta all by itself? If so, it will not run. Launch a Power PC Application. Does that work?

I was running Jam before on Tiger. when I moved to Snow leopard , the first tim I launched it it said " Jam requires rosetta,would you like to install it. " I did no luck

Generally the first time you use an Application that requires Rosetta one gets the little message box asking if you want to install it. Have a look at this link:-

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!
