    I am trying to reinstall Leopard because as of the 10.5.6 update I am having wifi problems. However when I try to reinstall Leopard from the install disc that came with my macbook it installs Leopard fine but it also installs the 10.5.6 update which I do not want. I have also tried to zero out the data on the disc and this did not work. I just want to install 10.5.0 with no updates whatsoever, so how would I be able to do this?

    Many Thanks

    You could have a 10.5.6 retail disk or your Mac could have shipped with 10.5.6

    I purchased it in april so could this be possible? If so how can I downgrade to 10.5.5?

    Yes, the restore discs that come with the new Mac will be the current system at that time. That's why you are at 10.5.6 after a reinstall. The only way you're going to get to 10.5.0 is to get a retail copy of Leopard that is from when it was originally released. I would look to EBay to find such a disc, or maybe a friend or family member. It will need to be a retail version as the gray restore discs are machine specific.
