    Alright a very dumb question for all of those that are very understanding of the Mac OS. I admit I am still learning. Here goes: I have a macbook with a 60gb drive. I am planning on upgrading this to a 160gb drive in the near future. I would like to also upgrade to Leopard. Now do I use super duper ( I have an external drive) .... remove the old hard drive ... install new hard drive ... do clean install of Leopard ... and then reconnect and sync up with super duper on external? Does that sound right, or am I completely wrong. Please help. Thanks in advance.

    That will work, however I would recommend simply performing a clean install on your new 160 GB disk and then copy over your user-specific files over (including your Applications).
