And be prepared to pay quite dearly for it. And remember no black/silver model specific discs that came with another computer. These are extremely model specific. When you purchase the Leopard disc then update via Software Update to OS X.5.8.

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!

What do you mean? You mentioned in post #1 that you already had OS 10.4.11 installed on your Mac.
