Will the upgrade version of Vista install on a mac or do you need the full version?

My girlfriend bought the vista upgrade through her school for 70 bucks because they told her it would install on Leopard and that you didn't need the full version... I find this hard to believe.

Important: You must use a single full-install Windows installation disc. Service pack 2 is required for Windows XP installations. Do not install an earlier version of Windows XP and attempt to update it later to service pack 2. Use only 32-bit versions of Windows.

It would probably install on the mac if you already had XP installed, seeing as it's an upgrade version, but by itself, I highly doubt it.

Think about it: Would a Vista Upgrade install the whole OS on a new partition?
