    How are you trying to upgrade? You will need to buy a retail of either Tiger (10.4) or Leopard (10.5) depending on which you want...

    Unless you have a good reason to upgrade I'd be tempted to say stay with 10.3.9. Both Tiger and Leopard like more RAM than Panther...

    If you could post some specs it would help facilitate the process.

    Apple say yes. You'll probably need the 640Mb of RAM to make it worthwhile though...
