    Seriously?

    1. Download a copy of iATKOS, Kalyway, or JaS Leopard DVD. (Not going into further details on that on, seeing that it is illegal to download a copy of Leopard without having it already.

    2. Burn it on a DVD, and pop it in your computer, and restart.

    3. Go into BIOS (Should be like ESC or F2 on boot)

    4. Try looking around for Priority Boot or something... and put your DVD drive in first!

    5. It will ask you to press F8, or it will just boot the disc after 8 seconds... press F8 before the timer ends...

    6. When it asks you to type something, type in "-v" no quotes of course...

    7. It should show some text scrolling, and it should stop and show the Apple Installation thing.

    8. Go into Utilities > Disk Utility (Oh yea, make sure that you shrink you primary disk to make some unallocated space so that you can format to NTFS (Or NTSF... whatever...) so that you can follow with this step (PM me if you need help on that dude)) and format you (Or Erase on Disk Utility) to Mac OS X (NOT JOURNALED!). Name it to what you can remember.

    9. Once that is done, go back to the Installation and Install on the one that you just formatted.

    10. Wait and it should restart and it should boot up. If it doesnt boot up and goes back to the installer, reboot and press F8 on the point you did before. Now type "rd=disk0sX -v -f" ( X = the partition that it is on (Sorry for explaing this with the wrong words, but im kind of stupid...) so say that it is on the 2nd partition of the 3 that you have (Like i do) then X would be 2 so it would be "disk0s2." Since you said that you arent that great with computers, it should be 2. unless your computer has a partition with backups and drivers for your computer and stuff... just ask...)

    11. It should boot up with text scrolling and it should boot up in the setup for Leopard. Yay! Hopefully...

    Questions!?
