    Have a quick question

    My mac os x (currently) is updated at 10.5.7.

    If I were to buy leopard and install, would it work/ install properly? Since the retail version of leopard is at 10.5.6?

    When I originally bought the mac the pre-installed software was 10.5.5.

    The install discs i have are not working properly for some reason.

    Or, you could wait for about 2 months and buy Snow Leopard for $30. But if you want to reinstall Leopard, and the reinstall discs aren't working, head to an Apple store and they should help out. Schedule a Genius Bar appointment.

    If you're selling it, get the retail discs and do an erase and install. Then follow this guide.
