    You are not trying to archive and install Leopard. Boot into your system (Tiger), insert the Leopard disk and there should be a Finder window that pops up. Click the “Install Mac OS X” icon and then follow the instructions.

    I understand that. It should be grayed out. The option you have is to upgrade. Upgrading removes the Tiger system files and then replaces them with Leopard. You have nothing to Archive and Install from yet with Leopard.

    That’s right. Just make sure you UPGRADE, not clean install! That will remove everything, upgrade keeps everything.
