I beg your pardon, you're right I misread that you mentioned Leopard. You may have the minimum specifications however I'd recommend adding more RAM otherwise it will be very very slow. Do you have at least 9GB of available HD storage? Remember Macs need 10-15% of the total HD available at all times. So if you have a 250GB HD it should always have 37.5GB available.
