I've never updated any version of Mac OSX and have had Tiger preinstalled on my MBP. I want to upgrade to Tiger without wiping the hard drive or "archiving"... i just want a straight upgrade.

how will this affect the performance?

it should technically increase b/c now Leopard will take advantage of the Core 2 Duo's 64-bit capabilities... but will having Tiger somewhere in there slow it down?

Will all traces of Tiger get erased? Leaving only the new Leopard OS?

Tiger will be relegated to a folder that you can delete if you choose. Tiger will not be slowing down any part of Leopard.

so the Tiger OS will get sent to a folder... but will put all my preferences, applications, & documents in Leopard?
