I have the following system:


PowerBook G4 (3.3) 17-inch

Serial Number V73161WXMVZ

OS 10.3.9


55.88 GB hard drive with 6.2 GB free


I want to upgrade to at least Tiger (10.4) or maybe even Leopard (10.5) if my system will support it.  I will be doing an "Archive and Install" protocol.


I have found a couple of other discussions (one from January of this year) regarding this situation, but the devil is in the details, which are missing.


Who do I contact (phone preferred; email acceptable) to arrange to get the latest version of OS which will run on my system.  Does the software come on a CD(s) or DVD?  I'm not sure if my system can read a DVD.  Hopefully an Apple guru can tell from the system info I have provided.


If the software comes on a DVD, and my system won't read a DVD, then I need a version of the software I can download and install.  I also have Mac Mini running OS 10.6.8 on the same network, so a network installation can be done, but I will need step-by-step instructions for doing this.
