    It looks like you should be able to run Snow Leopard, although you didn't say how much RAM you have. Technically Snow Leopard only requires 1GB, but in my experience it works best with at least 2GB, and more is better.

  • Yes. It worked for me.

    I prefer to install Snow Leopard on a fresh partition. During the installation, the installer will ask if you want to import OS settings, apps and files from the other partition. Do this for a smooth transition (that keeps your OS 10.4.11 partition intact in event of power failure during install).

    Afterwards, you can decide if you want to delete the OS 10.4.11 partition, or keep it and have a dual boot Mac. Simply hold the option key down at start up and select the partition you want to start up from.
