    I was about to install Snow Leopard to my Macbook white 2.0 ghz with combo drive which I bought in 2007. I have Leopard installed. Is there anything I should know before I begin? I have an external HD with 160 left. Should I move important files there first?

    Put in your DVD, click install. leave it for about an hour come back and everything will be as you left it but in Snow Leopard.

    Half hour actually. It's all automatic. Plop it in, pick a language, click Install and it goes by itself. But I would add one last step first, make sure you click Customize and turn off all the drivers, languages and fonts to save an extra half hour.

    I keep hearing from people that you should back up important data first.

    I have never used Time Machine. Do you need a new external hard drive for that? I do have a portable external hard drive but it has files on it with about 160 gb left.

    Also, I have a question about connecting wirelessly. If I install Snow Leopard, would my connection remain the same (ie it remembers my network password)? I am asking this because I am not sure where the installation disc is for the wireless router.
