    It is not a dumb question, but it has been asked and answered too many times to count. To update your OS, you must purchase a retail copy of MacOS X 10.5 or MacOS X 10.6 and install it. MacOS X 10.5 is no longer available for sale by Apple. Just buy MacOS X 10.6 and go with that.

    I'm told that Apple will still sell you Leopard. It's not a product listed on the Apple Store website. You have to call them. Get the number from the website.



    Going from 10.4 to 10.6 is a matter of controversy. Apple wants Tiger users to purchase the Box Set for $169 which includes iWork '09 in it. While it works to purchase the $29 Snow Leopard single license, that's really intended for people who already own Leopard.



    You could just buy a new Mac. You'd get SL with it.
