You can update Tiger to its final version 10.4.11 via Software Update, or download it directly:
The 10.4.11 Combo Updater for PPC Macs is here: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL170
Then you should be able to install Leopard, BUT note that install disks from another model of Mac may not work as these are machine specific. You may need a black retail install disk of Leopard from Amazon or eBay.
Upgrading the OS from Tiger and Leopard:
Installing Leopard OS 10.5:
Ok first off thanks for the responses guys now heres whats going on. Klaus1 I tried what you recomemnded already with no success. I'm currently trying again for craps and giggles. Actually seems to be working so far... rccharles I meet all the system requirements for Logic 8 (Dual 2 GHz PowerPC G5 2 GB DDR SDRAM) except for the OS apparently which was my reason posting. Success! It seems to have updated my OS to 10.4.11 so now I will try to install Logic 8 again and check back with you guys momentarily
Alright so after installing Logic 8 again it says "this version of logic requires Pro Application Support 4.0 (687.0) or newer. Prokit (589.0)" I have yet to locate these on the Apple update sit at least by that name. So my secondary issue is resolved but I still haven't resolved my original one. Do you guys have any clues as to how/ where I can download/install this Pro Application Support 4.0 or newer and Prokit (589.0) so I can move on with my life???
Uh correction. I used the upgrade link to 10.4.11 and that worked however I dont have Leopard 10.5.8. That still wont install from the disc. The computer tries to upload it and then goes into this hyper drive that mimics a a dirt bike or large vaccum cleaner so I shut it off... What am I doing wrong here?
The folks in this link indicate 4.5 will work.
& notice there is a logic pro forum.
& the link didn't work for me
another site found this link.
Here is ProKit 4.5
Apple has been purging older downloads. It's a drag.
You can somethings find things if you know the exact name:

You want the lastest version of Firefox? Use the TenFourFox g5 clone.
TenFourFox -- It's a port of the latest FireFox to run on older hardware and software.
"World's most advanced web browser. Finely tuned for the Power PC."
-- works for me on 10.4. Supports 10.5
alternative download site:
Turn on pipelining. This will allow Firefox to make simaltaneous requests to the server. Chrome has pipeling turned on. Some sites could fail to load with pipeling set on. The site will be old. See "Increase pipelining" in:
OmniWeb uses the lastest Safari framework. The open source WebKit. Other browsers like Safari and iCab use the OS version of WebKit. The OmniWeb downloaded dmg includes it's own copy of the latest WebKit.
