    The serial # is on the bottom. If it is a twelve digit #, post last 4 digits. If 11, post last three digits of serial #.

    You do not need Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard prior to installing Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, as the 19 USD Upgrade DVD is a fully working retail version of Mac OS X and does not need a prior installation of Mac OS X on the Mac.
