I want to upgrade Leopard to Snow Leopard. I don't have anything extra on my Macbook Pro, only what came with it. Do I need to do a clean install?

Clean install necessary?

    No clean install is required,- Just purchase and install Snow Leopard.
    This can then be used as a launching pad for lion and above if you wish.
    Snow Leopard IS required before you can upgrade to lion as well if desired.
    (make sure your MacBook meets the hardware criteria as described in the Snow Leopard requirements.)
