    Firstly thanks to all for the help today..its been an eventful one:eek:

    Okay, next up is installing leopard..I've installed the disc 1 but I already have OSX 10.4.11 I want to install in a way that wont erase or wipe existing applications...I am a total, total noob so don't overestimate me..I'm new to mac (which was the best move ever!!!) and this is one big learning curve.

    To top it all I'm learning logic 8 at the same time as learning where everything is on my Macbook pro:eek:

    If you already have OS X Tiger installed on your Mac, the Leopard installer should see it and do an upgrade be default. This won't erase any of your personal files. Though I do recommend you back up your files first just in case something goes wrong. I'd recommend SuperDuper or CarbonCopyCloner.

    What you want to do is called Archive and install. That should save all you programs.
