the software updates inbetween are totally seperate, newer versions of OS X, they must be purchased. You'll need to call apple sales to purchase 10.6, then run software update to get to 10.6.8 and download 10.8 from the app store, assuming your mac meets the technical requirements.

Mountain Lion is not a freebie patch you can install thru Software Update. It is a full fledged operating system that costs $20 and can only be obtained thru the App Store application.
What? No App Store in your Applications Folder? Of course not, you have Leopard. So, you have to call Apple so they will sell you the 10.6 Snow Leopard Install DVD for $20. Then, when you have "updated" to that, you'll find the App Store in Applications and will be able to pay another $20 to download the Mountain Lion installer and complete the desired "update"
