    I am running Panther 10.3,and want to install Snow Leopard.

    Do I first have to install any other updates,or can I go ahead and install Snow Leopard?

    If you're running Panther then you're using a PPC Mac, Snow Leopard only works with Intel Macs.

    That one will run 10.5.8 Leopard (info at Everymac.com). It will be a lot peppier in 10.4.11 (last version of Tiger), but there's a good bit of software out there that requires 10.5.8.
