I hope someone can advise me.  I am running OS 10.6.8 and have iMovie 11 (9.0.4) currently installed.  I do not want to delete iMovie 11, but want to install and also use iMovie 6 HD, probably by purchasing an old iLife 06 version from Amazon or elsewhere.
I have read that installing iMovie 06 after iMovie 11 is already in place will overwrite and destroy iMovie 11.  I don't want to completely lose "11" or the projects I have already done in "11."  I read a forum post about temporarily moving "11" into another folder to prevent overwriting when installing "6."

But what about the QuickTime codecs, any other important related files for "11," and the iMovie 11 "iMovie Events" and "iMovie Projects" folders that are already inside User > Movies?  Will those Events and Projects folders be harmed by installing iMovie 6 after iMovie 11?  I don't want to cripple "11" by also installing "6."

Are there any step-by-step directions for accomplising this?
Many thanks for any assistance.
