So when I get Leopard next week I'm thinking I should clean my entire harddrive and use my reinstall disc and what not to start from scratch that way there may not be problems and what not. Should I do this or just straight up install Leopard?

I did clean install and its been working well. Just a few glitches, weird lock ups when I try to choose Spotlight, thats happened to me twice. I have to hold the powerbuttond down because there is no way to shut down when it does it.

I didn't have the patience to wait for a backup drive to do wipe the drive clean and install Leopard. So I did an OS upgrade. It worked flawless, no issues, it's not slow or anything like that.
