To get to 10.5 you must purchase the install DVD.
Apple is no longer sell it so you must pirchase it else where.
If your Mac will run 10.6, Apple is still sell the install DVD for that and they are cheaper.

If your Mac is a PowerMac, you can only go as high as OS X 10.5 Leopard.
Apple is now selling these again as replacement retail OS discs.
Call Apple direct at 1-800-MYAPPLE and ask for OS X software sales.
Tell them you need a copy of OS X 10.5 Leopard. You will need to give the Apple rep your Mac's serial number.
You will be charged less than $20 U.S. for these discs.
