    I just got my snow leopard disc in the door and I threw in the disc, selected the Macintosh HD partition and started installing. I didn't get an option to select either an "upgrade" or fresh install.. Could someone please tell me if it's upgrading leopard to snowleopard or is it just installing a clean version of SL...?

    It's currently on a screen where there's 55min left and it says "Installing"... Should I press quit or just continue? I just wanna upgrade from leopard to SL

    it's a full retail SL disc if that matters.

    You're doing upgrade. There's no clean install option anymore, you must manually wipe your HD with SL disk's Disk Utility and then install.
