Good morning group,

I am currently working with my 2002 PowerBook G4 12", 867MHz, 40GB, 1.25 RAM, running Tiger OSX 10.4

I recenly purchased a Leopard 10.5 install disc and want to reboot my laptop to Leopard.  I also purchased Microsoft Office 2008 suite, but cannot find my install disc.

My goal is to transfer data like my ITunes library, documents and Office program to an external hard drive, delete any remaining content from the laptop hard drive, then install Leopard onto the laptop and re-install the data and programs from the external drive.

Since i am reasonably intelligent but not overly computer savvy, this seems like a doable event. My question is how do I accomplish this task?   i guess that I am looking for a step-by-step assistance, but do not want anyone to reinvent the wheel; prior to this post, I attempted to search this forum for a solution, but to no avail.  Any assistance would be appreciated. As it currently stands, I cannot even use my IPhone with this computer due to Tiger program limitations, and I do not want to lose Office.

Thanks in advance, Chardagha
