    Hi I have a Mac Mini 2GHz Intel core 2 duo that originally came with leopard but I bought upgrade to snow leopard.

    I also have a Iomega 500GB stand alone hard drive and running time machine as back up.

    How do I reinstall original software with out losing all my pics, music, apps and so on?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Cheers in Advance

    Boot off of the Snow Leopard CD after you make a final time machine backup. At the end of install it will ask if you want to migrate your stuff from the time machine to the new install... or you could just do an upgrade.
