    I just did a totally "clean" install of Snow Leopard (without Leopard installed) and I just noticed that iMovie, iDVD and iPhoto are all missing from my Applications folder. Am I hallucinating?

    You need to install iLife.

    Which is on the gray Leopard installation DVD number 2, the one that came with your Mac, if you have updated to Snow Leopard with the 29/49USD update.

    Unless you have a Mac that came with Snow Leopard on it, then it is on the gray Snow Leopard installation DVD number 2, the one that came with your Mac.

    Thank you. I have my old Leopard discs... but... I actually have my Leopard drive in an enclosure now, and so I dragged those apps from the old Application folder into the new one... will they work fine just with a drag and drop copy or do they need to be formally "installed" via a dmg install?

    If you just drag/drop them you won't get any of the supporting files like the themes for iDVD which are in /Library/Application Support
