    thanks. i didn't want a repeat of the last time i bought a pc.
    7 years ago i bought a dell and had microsoft works in a brown envelope and just threw it in a drawer not knowing what it was.
    few days later a buddy told me i should have had a maps cd, along with a few others. i called up dell complaining and they said they would send it to me. i got it and it looked like the same brown envelope. maybe i should have opened it up.:)

    another question i had about this. when i buy leopard, can i just do a upgrade or do i have to do a format then install ? i know you should always just format, at least it was this way on windows. once i do that can i just load up the ilife programs from those cd's ?

    You can either upgrade or do a clean install. Upgrade works perfectly, normally they go on smoothly without causing any problems.

    And if you make a clean install, of Leopard, then Leopard won't have the iLife apps. So after making the clean install of Leopard, insert the second DVD of Tiger to install the iLife apps.
