    I've just got it !

    Tried to install it as an upgrade to Leopard. Installer starts, but after 7 minutes it ends and after I start Mac OS X again I'm still in 10.5.8. WTF ?

    Could be bad memory or a bad dvd media/drive. You are going to need to post more information (especially any crash/console logs).

    grats :)

    I noticed that I couldn't launch the installer from within Leopard... It couldn't identify my SW RAI0 boot volume as a possible install location.

    Rebooting with the DVD in the drive worked as expected.

    Can you backup the data, and do a clean install?

    Edit: nevermind. :p

    The only problem after switching is my mouse - Logitech VX Revolution.

    When I scroll pages in Safari even when I set the slowest speed, it's too fast for me.

    Logitech Control Panel is not working on Snow Leopard.

    This happens to me, and I believe it has something to do with choosing the boot volume for the next boot not working. For instance, on my Mac Pro, if I use the "Startup Disk Selector" or whatever the hell it's called to boot to another volume on reset, it never works. It just reboots to the default. I have to hold down the option key to get the list of volumes to boot to and select the correct one manually.
