To upgrade to OS X 10.6 you will need an Intel based Mac with at least 1GB RAM, 5GB hard disk space and a DVD drive.
If your Mac doesn't meet those specifications... it is time to upgrade your hardware (which will come with Lion).
If you have a Core 2 Duo Mac with 2GB RAM or greater, then you can upgrade all the way to Lion. My 2007 MacBook runs Lion acceptably well, which is quite impressive for a 5 year old machine!
can i run mac osx on an intel pentium (pc basis)
I'm leaning toward moving from PC to MAC, but I have three decades software invested in the PC world. I'd like to be able to dual or preferrable, triple-boot a high-performance intel machine (4-dual-quad zenon chips.).
How is the best way to invoke this? Use separate boot-drives or set up a multi-boot option at start-up?

Yes you will need the box set. Or alternatively you could buy a copy of leopard of an online seller an buy snow leopard. But the value for the box set is tremendous and with the updated iLife 11', now is the best time to buy. Your MacBook must have 1Gb of ram or more to update to snow leopard. Hope I helped :)
upgrade from 10.4 to 10.6
I have a macbook Core 2 Duo 2.0Gz 13" laptop with MAC OS X v.10.4 Tiger. I want to upgrade to 10.6.
Can you please tell me what I need to do. The only upgrade I have been able to find on the Apple website requires I have 10.5 installed.
Can you please assist me.

No, Garageband is not part of Snow leopard, it is part of the iLife software. To upgrade to Garageband 09 you need to get iLife 09 which includes Garageband. If you upgrade to Snow leopard, Garageband still will be version 08.

Does this upgrade provide support for the Common Access Cards (CAC) used by the military. Currently having huge issues passing certificates.
The current OS the I use cannot pass certificates with the CAC card so I am not able to access any Military Websites that require CAC login. Have read and implemented everything that every blog has suggested with no avail. Hoping this upgrade provides this accessibility.

How do I determine if my AirPort card supports Wake on Demand over Wireless BEFORE upgrading to Snow Leopard?
Will my AirPort Card, which has firmware version Broadcom BCM43xx 1.0 (220.127.116.11), be compatible with the Wake on Demand over Wireless feature?
This feature is the only reason I would upgrade to Snow Leopard, so I'd like to know in advance if my hardware supports it. Thanks.

Click the Apple Logo in your menu bar located in the far left corner. From there choose "About this Mac".
Your Operating System version should appear under the Apple Logo and Mac OS X. (Ex. Version 10.5.8)

Unfortunately, having that version of OS X (same as I have...) you can only upgrade to Lion either by buying the Lion USB Thumb flash drive (for 69$) or by updating first to Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6) - by buying the CD-Rom for 29$, and then updating to Lion via the mac app store (which is only available to OS X from Snow Leopard on) for another 29$ (coming on 58$ total).
It's kind of a bummer: you have to get an OS (that you are not going to use!!) to get another... So far Apple hasn't made any other options available.
Check wikipedia Lion OS X article, under Release and Distribuition, for more info on it!
