    Just pop in the disc and follow the instructions... It's way easy.

    If you choose the option to erase the HD and install new OS it will take care of that. You will have a fresh install of OS X.

    I'm pretty sure you need the original disks to install the programs.

    If you want you can do an archive and install to Leopard - it will be a new OS but the user files will still be there - you can delete them, but the programs will remain.
