    Hello I'm upgrading the hard drive in my Macbook to a 1TB one, partitioning and installing Mac/Windows/Linux. It's one of those 2.5" that are 0.5mm larger than the usual ones, I hope it still works.

    When I install Mac, do I have to install Leopard, THEN upgrade to SL, or can I just install SL (it's an upgrade disc) without the Leopard disc that originally came with my Macbook?

    [verybadlyexplainedpart] Also, my family and I have used 4 out of our 5 iTunes account... things. Is there any way to 'sign out' of iTunes on my current HDD, on my Mac and Windows partitions to free up 2 of the 4 login things? [/verybadlyexplainedpart]

    Thanks!

    You do not need to instal Leopard first as the Snow Leopard Disc will install successfully without "upgrading" a previous OS.

    Not sure about the iTunes thing.

    Thanks guys :)

    Whilst I'm here, is there any way to mount, read, and write ext4 partitions on OSX yet?

    I think the OP means this:

    Wikipedia: Ext4
