Hi If the install is  anything like the mac mini then the answer will  
be no.

My mini shipped with tiger and i tried the panther install rather  
than upping the other macs in the house and it was a no go. just kept  
telling me no with the big red circle and line so i ended up with a  
mix of panther and tiger around the house. it is still fine for  
mixing but a-lot of the new stuff requires tiger Like ilife 06 so i  
will need to save a-bit  and upgrade the lot before  long.
