    I am about to purchase a new copy of Snow Leopard. I am currently using Leopard 10.5 OS X but I do not have the actual disk. If I need to do a fresh reinstall in the future after installing Snow Leopard, will I need the Leopard 10.5 disk as well?

    I'm asking this because I am hoping that purchasing the very affordable Snow Leopard OS X will prevent me from needing to buy a Leopard disc.

    Thanks for your help!! Let me know if I need to clarify something...

    You don't need a Leopard disk to install Snow Leopard.

    Ok cool. So just to clarify, that means I will be able to do a fresh install with just the Snow Leopard disk if I need to reformat or something. Correct?
