    I bought snow leopard today and when I insert the disc, the finder pops up with all the usual stuff. When I click the install button, nothing happens.

    Any help?

    Try shutting down the computer, then start it up holding the "c" key until it boots from the DVD. Then install.

    Are you upgrading from Leopard ?

    If not you need to buy the Box Set.

    If you're trying to install it on your hackintosh. Give up.

    I'd recommend backing all your files up and do a clean install.
