I bought a Mac mini tonight with the Leopard drop-in DVD.

It is an upgrade disc, it needs to find Tiger before it will install.

Once it has confirmed Tiger is present, you get the same options as the retail disc. I'm assuming the up-to-date disc will work the same.

I've just run an erase & install on the mini, there was too much wasted space after upgrading Tiger to Leopard using the default upgrade settings.

The upgrade disc actually looks for OS X 10.4 or later, so it is ok to re-install Leopard again without reloading Tiger first.

Thanks for confirming that.
