    do they have any differences?

    i heard that Up to Date version is only working with Tiger and Can not Clean install.

    if i wanna Clean install, do i have to install the Tiger and than leopard?

    is that true?

    There was one person on the board who has it. He cliams you can do all three options, Erase and install, Archive and upgrade.

    So thats good news.

    Not sure if you have to have Tiger running though. I assume in the future, if you want to reinstall your Leopard over, you can just re-pop the leopard cd and do a clean and install.

    The question is, is the up2date cd a 'drop in' disc that requires
    Tiger installed to proceed with installation or a 'full retail' cd
    that does not require Tiger installed first?

    Does it include full retail packaging or is it just the disc?

    After reading numerous things I'm pretty certain the Up-To-Date disc is a drop in which makes sense because if you bought a Mac after the first you have to have Tiger on it. Also, I'm pretty sure that the guy who got it posted images of it and it was in a sleeve not a box.

    It would make sense, but am hoping otherwise. Anyone with first
    hand knowledge want to comment?

    I got an up to date disk for Tiger and it was just in a sleeve but allowed all options on install. I guess the leopard one will probably be the same but don't know for definite

    The Up-to-Date DVD is just a dropped in disk in nothing but a sleeve.

    You CAN do all three options, clean install, Archive and Install and Update.

    However, the catch is you MUST have a previous version of Mac OS X installed on the drive before you can do any of them. So if you say, erase the drive with disk utility it won't let you install until you put Tiger on it, but then you can do a clean install (erases drive) and install a fresh copy of Leopard.

    Thanks for the reply. Darn, I want to install on a seperate partition
    and the extra step to install Tiger first will be a pain. Oh well,
    I can deal.
