    I'll receive a brand new 160gb drive for my Macbook in a few days, but I have no idea whatsoever on how I would install OS X on it. Do I just replace my old drive and boot the computer with the discs loaded, or do I have to do something first? (Ie. hold any key during boot or so..?)

    Also, is there anything I might encounter that will confuse me (choices I have to make and so on..)

    Do anyone have any tips/suggestions? :rolleyes:

    Just put the discs in and hold down C. Everything is pretty straight forward to do, just read what is displayed on the screen.

    What are you doing with the old drive, if you have a spare external you can just pop it in there (assuming correct size and interface etc.) And use Disk Utility on the CD to copy everything over, or you could use the migration assistant to copy all your data.
