    If you're using a G3, you can't.

    If you're using a G4 or G5, purchase Mac OS X 10.5 on DVD.

    If you're using an Intel Mac, purchase Mac OS X 10.6 on DVD, or get it from Apple for free if you're a paid MobileMe member.

     

    Intel Macs with a Core 2 Duo or better CPU can run Lion. This is available from the Mac App Store in 10.6.6 and newer or on an USB flash drive.

    Yes, it does, unless you're a paid MobileMe member. Installing Mac OS X 10.5 is technically doable, but that OS is harder to find and much more expensive than Mac OS X 10.6.

    Snow Leopard/10.6.x Requirements...

     

    General requirements

       * Mac computer with an Intel processor

        * 1GB of memory (I say 2GB at least)

        * 5GB of available disk space (I say 30GB at least)

        * DVD drive for installation

        * Some features require a compatible Internet service provider; fees may apply.

        * Some features require Apple’s MobileMe service; fees and terms apply.

     

    Which apps work with Mac OS X 10.6?...

    It looks like they do still have it:

    And it's been reported that if you have a MobileMe account Apple will send one free.

     

     

    If it's a core Duo & not a Core2Duo, then it'll only run in 32 bit mode.
