    You'll have to wipe the drive if you want to install a lower OS.

    Go into the installer like usual, then at the location select screen, click "Option" and click the "Erase and Install" option, then proceed with installation.

    FWIW, I'd recommend either sticking with Tiger or at least Panther (10.3). Panther is faster than Jaguar (10.2) on any system at all. Plus, you'll miss a ton of features you most likely take for granted going such a big jump from Tiger to Jaguar.
