Hi,
I know nothing about MACS and am trying to upgrade a computer to Snow Leopard.  What type of preperation do I need to do?  Should I back up all the photo's and music first?

Thanks.

The first thing you need to know is whether your particular Mac supports Snow Leopard. The older PowerPC chip Macs will not run SnowLeopard. You need a Mac with a Intel Chip. You can find out what kind of chip you have by pulling down the Apple Menu to About this Mac.

It is probably not necessary to back anything up. Just insert the Snow Leopard DVD and run the install.

If want to be completely safe, you could use Carbon Copy Cloner ( http://www.bombich.com ) to clone the entire drive to a USB external drive.
