    I'm out here in Afghanistan and the internet is horrible. My plan is to start fresh with my new Seagate Momentus XT with the install discs. I'm getting the discs sent to me but if I remember correctly the OS on the discs at the time of purchase was 10.6. When I'm home I just auto update with Software Update. So my question is, can I update straight to 10.6.6 from 10.6 or do I have to manually update through each update from 10.6? Any help will do. Thanks.

    You download the combo update which updates from the disk version to the latest version.

    I already have the new 10.6.6 Combo dmg update sitting on my thumb drive. So you're saying I can do a fresh install and and go straight to 10.6.6?

    Duff-Man says...yes, that's what the combo is for - it's got all the OS 10.6.0.-> 10.6.6 updates built in...you're pretty much all set...oh yeah!
