New Macbook OSX Leopard upgrade question

G'day all!

I just got a 2nd macbook pro preisntalled with leopard. However, when installing it I selected the option to transfer my data from my previous macbook pro.

After all that was done via firewire, I know have an identical computer running Tiger (10.4)...

How do I get my leopard on there? Just slap in the Leopard DVD and run? Would rather not lose my date..
I also ordered preinstalled iWork, but I guess I can just install that from the DVD.

Yeah, just pop in the leopard disc and follow the instructions. It will install without harming any of your original data.

Sort of. The upgrade went flawlessly on my parents' Macbook but kept telling me mine didn't have OS X 10.4 or later. Except it did. Weird. I ended up booting mine in target disk mode and installing from my parents' computer.

Oh, and I discovered the SECOND time (15 minutes in) that you can skip the DVD verification.
