    Not sure whether it's a bug in LION, i had LION running on my Mac and i just un installed Safari as i see some browsing issues. When i downloaded Safari 5.1 and tried installing it, i got the error saying i should have MAC OS X 10.6 to install....

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Remove the Safari 5.1 receipt bundle and retry.

    Duff-Man says....I think your issue is that the version of Safari that you d/l from Apple is the version for 10.6 SL. Lion ships with Safari 5.1 as part of the OS install so there's no installer for it at Apple as a separate download. You'll likely need to dig into your Lion install package and find the package for Safari in did back up the installer, or have a backup of some sort hopefully? You should be able to use Pacifist to find the installer you need (I don't have it in front of me so can't give you the full path to follow)....oh yeah!
