is it possible to purchase the Snow Leopard on line and download it, instead of trying to get to the nearest Apple store and get a Install DVD?

    Currently Apple does not offer Snow Leopard as a download. There are a number of alternatives to purchasing from an Apple retail store, but they all involve purchase of physical media for the installation.

    Best of luck.

    It looks like you would have to buy Leopard first, since your profile has your OS at 10.4.11.

    SL only updates 10.5

    Apple does not offer major OS's as a Download option.
