    It needs to boot from the DVD. Just restart holding down the "C" button and the Macbook will boot from the DVD. From there, it is just answering the questions. Takes about 30 minutes.

    Obviously the disc mount under Tiger.

    If you have an external FireWire HD, I would create a disc image of the Leopard DVD and burn the image to the FW drive. Once that happens, restart your computer and hold down option and that'll bring up the internal HD and the Leopard Install image.
