    i freshly install Leopard into my mac, wiping all my content (after backing up all my gear ;)) then plug my wee iPhone in?

    what do i need for it to sync again?

    I did this exact thing. My iTunes asked if I wanted to merge address book and iCal with the stuff from my phone. I said yes and it synced those two. As far as music and video goes, once you get it transferred it should be fine. As long as you have backups of your iTunes, address book, and iCal just in case, it should be fine.

    alright PHEW cos i thot i would hav to reregister or something

    but what about the iTunes account and stuff, cos wen i had to create a new account and everything for this iPhone thru my mums name and now ive forgotten all her details and stuff

    does that matter?

    cos its a legit iPhone, no hacking or anything so its locked to O2, so will O2 or iTunes not need any account names or passwords typed in?

    It shouldn't. Just the iTunes account for the protected content from iTunes.

    off topic, I know but what happens if...

    ... I install Leopard choosing to upgrade instead of a fresh install??
    does it mean that all my data and apps etc remain on my HD??

    Yes. It will only change the OSX specific files. If you do an archive and install it will replace the entire OS, leaving everything else as is as well, but it even replaces files that weren't changed from Tiger.
