Can I use this version of Snow Leopard to downgrade from OS X Lion?

I bought a refurbished 2008 Macbook that came pre-installed with OS X Lion. My old Mac Mini (just sold it) ran Snow Leopard (10.6). Now, some of my apps (PowerPC) and other functions are gone and I desperately need them back.

Can I use this disc to "erase & install" Snow Leopard without a previous version of Mac OS X? Thanks.

    A quick call to Apple Support tells us that yes, this disc is suitable for a "clean install" after erasing the hard drive. But, beware, this disc does not contain iLife (i.e. Garageband, iPhoto, and iMovie), so I had to purchase iPhoto separately from the App Store for $15. Still not a bad deal. And yes, I am happily reunited with Snow Leopard.
