Actually, you shouldn't need the retail package, per se. The Leopard Developers dmg is available in many places online for developer work. If you make an install disk from it, it will update to 10.5.8 online - for now. Not sure how long it will be before the update servers go away, just like they did for 10.3.x and 10.4.x

Jim Kirk, 
This is a most desirable upgrade. However, the prices I've seen on 
LEMswap for the retail disks are Outrageous. 
Much more than I paid retail to OWC originally. Don't find it retail 
anywhere so, maybe you know someone with the disks you can borrow. 

You didn't mention (or I missed it) the amount of your SDRAM memory. I 
would suggest that you max this. 
I have the Leopard OS10.5.8 on my 1.25GHz eMac, My 2000 Quicksilver W/ 
1.25 GHz Upgrade and a 2000 Quicksilver 
W/933 GHz upgrade. Though the eMac is only 1GB of SDRAM, it's plenty 
fast for eMail and typewriter work. 

The only problem I've had is the eMac G4 won't take the AppleWorks 
6.2.9 upgrade from 6.2.7. 
Both the Quicksilvers uploaded with out a problem. Appleworks 6.2.7 is 
prone to crash with OS10.5.8 and that's a pain. 

Though I have Nisus Writer Pro and iWORKS 9, most of my letter heads, 
envelopes and Spread Sheet Lists are in 
AppleWorks and it's so much less hassle. Any one have a clue on this 

If you think that a computer is saving you time ... let me sell you 
this lot, here in the middle of this swamp. -- the old curmudgeon
