Thanks alot. Another quick question, Ive been looking all over the place for a OS X install disc. Is it the same disc that Apple is selling for 10$? Or is that just a Upgrade disc?

Best is to buy the full Snow Leopard DVD (OS X 10.6) from Apple for $29.

No... it's a bit (a lot!) cheaper than Windows!

You can find several useful guides here, which explain the process in detail.
