    Ok, so I decided to buy SL 10.6 and a new HDD, but does anyone know if I have to first setup the new drive with the original disks 10.5 that came with the uMB, or can I just use SL 10.6? I also have the application disk with iLife 09 which I know I can instal after the OS.

    When Apple sells SL do they include any other drivers and software so that I can just install using the SL disk?

    Trying to make sure I am clear in what I am stating only because I do not want to have to load the original discs.

    Snow Leopard 10.6 is a full install, so you can start with an empty HDD (since your machine shipped with 10.5, there's no chance of having a newer/special build of 10.6.x).
