In planning to upgrade from OS 10.4.11, to 10.6 Snow Leopard , which now seems to be due I am a bit anxious not to confuse my current

data storage of pictures, films, music, documents and graphics.


My query centres around: Must I fully reformat my HD, have major backups done and set aside, before inserting

my 10.6 diskette? must  I uninstall  certain programs before just backing up?


will I come across to the Snow Leopard by just entering it over my old 10.4.11 left still in place.


My iMac desktop is 6 years old, dec. 2006, Intel duocore.  I kindof hope not to have to  buy another one quite yet..


Please wise men/women advise!?
