What version does the Snow Leopard install disk install?  What is the easiest way to install 10.6.8 on a new Macintosh?  (I need Rosetta)

I may soon buy a new MacBook Pro, but they are shipping with Lion and I need Rosetta. I can buy a Snow Leopard install disk, but what version does it install? I heard it was 10.6.5. It will be a nuisance, taking extra time and several reboots, to update from 10.6.5 to 10.6.8, which I may have to do several times over the lifetime of the computer.

  • Just purchased Snow Leopard from Apple to upgrade from OSX 10.5.8. Box says the version is 10.6.3. However, I'm having a bit of a problem installing it on a MacBook Pro since the machine will not load the software from the DVD. My intention is to eventually upgrade to Mountain Lion when available.
