    Sorry...but no PowerPC G5 (actually a Powermac G5 or an iMac G5)...can run Snow Leopard. So either the computer model is incorrect...or the OS name is incorrect.

    FYI: 10.5 = Leopard...10.6 = Snow Leopard.

    First read the post at the link below

    Second, there is no way you were previously running Snow Leopard OS X 10.6 on your PowerPC G5. You probably had Leopard OS X 10.5. Make sure you are using a Retail Disk for installation.

    Make sure you read the post in the link I gave you for additional information, but yes, provided you get a retail disk, it should work.
