    New to Mac. Finally found the link to download the Combo Upgrade. Happy Happy! When trying to install the upgrade... get this message: Install requires 506MB of space. I have 46 GB of space left on my root drive! Why won't the upgrade install? I like this computer... but I'm about ready to return to the evil world of PC's if I can't get this thing to do what I need it to do without spending a fortune on new operating systems, etc. Can anyone tell me what I need to do to load this upgrade?

    You can't upgrade from 10.4.11 to 10.4.9 because 10.4.9 came before 10.4.11.

    Are you possibly trying to upgrade from 10.4.9 to 10.5 ?

    no need for searching update links for your Mac , its all there and easy to find

    click on your small apple on the top left corner , then just click on software update , wait a bit and it tells you if your system needs updating and what updates are available



    upgrading is easy too,from 10.4 tiger to 10.5 leopard , just buy the osx 10.5 retail disc (if your Mac meets the minimum requirements) thats how its done, and then everything works
