    Okay, I'm scraping the trying to burn this to DVD becasue frankly I can't wait. I read the tutorial on how to instal the DMG with out burning.

    All I need to do is partition my exteral, put the dmg on it and mount it from there, and then just instal leopard right ontop of where I have os x. I this correct?

    :rofl:

    In theory, partitioning the drive and restoring 10.5 to a partition should work.

    However I'm feeling pretty stupid right now because I can't even get file sharing to work between 10.5 and my XP box. Worked with 10.4 last night :dunno:

    So I could be wrong, but it's worth a shot.

    *edit*

    I got the file sharing working :wiggle:

    The thing that I can't seem tog et a strait answer on is this going to be a fresh install? Is eveything I have set up in tiger going to be deleted? Do I have to reinstal everything?

    I put Leopard over the top of Tiger. Everything was still there, no reinstall necessary. I didn't really look into a clean install just because I had done one a few weeks back and hadn't backed up whatever I needed yet.
