    A few things:

    1. I don't mean to sound negative, but 10.5.5 is not a "firmware" update - it is a fairly big software update.

    2. Looks like you are trying to apple Security Update 2008-006 (Intel), which is for 10.4.11 on a 10.5.x system. (See bottom of page at for system requirements).

    3. 35 GB left on a 320 GB drive is somewhat pushing it, so consider archiving some data and free up more space. I'd suggest about 25% free space (but this may not be the problem).

    4. 10.5.5 combo update is here -->

    ^^^ Go with the combo update and you should be fine.
