    I am selling my 2 year old iMac.
    It came installed with Leopard 10.5, and I have the original DVD's.

    I recently (about a month ago), upgraded it to Snow Leopard.

    I was looking at this site:

    To get some ideas on how I can completely reset the system, to almost a factory install.

    Would I have to follow the steps to a full system install of Leopard, and then install Snow Leopard upgrade? Or can I use the Snow Leopard disk, to directly install that version as the clean install?

    At the end of the process, I would love to leave the system as "new" as possible.

    You can use the SL disc for the install
    But the SL disc should also go with the computer
    Otherwise you should install Leopard from the original discs
