    I just bought WD Scorpio Blue 500gb sata HD for my 2.4ghz MBP

    #1 Does anyone have a step by step guide for install?

    #2 After installed, do I load the MBP OS discs that came w/ computer then install Leopard...or do I just go straight to the Leopard disc?

    You want the aluminum instructions then. You could go right to the Leopard disks, but then it's a hassle to get the iLife apps if you don't have a separate set of install disks for that... assuming you want iLife.

    I provided two links in my previous post. Use the aluminum instructions as this is the type of MBP you have.
