hi all, got my upgrade disks for OS 10.2 however it says that i cannot upgrade as i am not running an earlier version of OS X.
the clamshell i got is running 9.2 (from what i can tell it is the later firewire version of the key lime clamshell 366 with 320 ram 10gb HD)

my question is basically "what do i do". do i need to get hold of a full version of 10.2 or is there someway of using my upgrade disk?
i am just learning about Macs and want to make the little thing into something more up to date for the kids
QUOTE Thanks

You would need the base 10.2 install media and the you can use your upgrade media.
