    You currently have Leopard? You currently have iLife?

    Then buy Snow Leopard and upgrade, all your apps with still be there.

    Your Mac came with two install disks, OS X and Applications. Use the application disk to reinstall iLife after you've installed SL

    More info

    I'm upgrading. My mac crashed a while ago, and they updated everything, including ilife, they put imovie HD on it, and I like it a lot better than the imovie I had before, so if I installed the one on the disc, if I have that disc, than it wont be the same.

    as long as you're just doing a straight-forward upgrade (the default way to install SL), your ilife will be the same, as will all the rest of your apps, data, profiles, settings, etc.
