    Have you tried running Software Updates? Not sure it would show up, but an easy thing to try. Does downloading the Leopard version cause an issue?

    software update doesnt show up with anything. downloading the leopard version would not install on snow leopard.

    It'll be on the disk. Show hidden files on the disk and go into /System/Installers/ or something, and you'll see Safari.pkg or mpkg then run it.

    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles YES
    then
    Code:
    killall Finder
    and to revert replace YES with NO .

    Well.. You could try searching for a direct link to the download, or check VersionTracker, they sometimes post up links for the latest updates. And besides, only about a month until SL final is released.
