    correct me if i'm wrong, but.......

    aren't you able to upgrade from 10.2.8 to 10.5 without jumping through other OS loopholes? When i install the panther disc it says that it does not recognize 10.4 or higher. What gives?

    I assume you currently have 10.2.8 on your machine?
    Are you trying to upgrade to Leopard 10.5 or Panther 10.3?
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

    My guess is he has an Leopard upgrade disk.

    it will automatically look for updates for free. after updating, can i then use my leopard disc to upgrade even further. is this correct?

    Specs:
    17" 2.0GHz C2D iMac, 2.5GB RAM || 2GHz C2D Macbook White, 2GB RAM || PowerMac G4 533MHz, 1GB RAM
    What speed is your G4 processor(s)? If it's < 867MHz, Leopard is not compatible with your computer. This could be the problem.

    The previous OS won't matter, it's getting wiped out (this is true as long as you're upgrading to an OS higher than your system came with)

    Where did the disk come from? Did you buy the Leopard DVD or is it from another computer? Make sure you boot from DVD as well by holding down C at startup.

    Also, how much memory do you currently have?
