Hi. You actually don't have to upgrade to 10.5 just for Pro Tools. Pro Tools LE version 7 supports Tiger. However, digidesign, the folks that created Pro Tools, is at version 8 and, from their website, they no longer offer 7. So, I looked it up on eBay and there are plenty of sellers that offer version 7 still. Just make sure the seller has a good rating before you decide to buy from them.

john can i still install 10.5 then upgrade to 10.6 will protools still run on my mac

Hi. Well, from the information I researched, there doesn't seem to be any data to the contrary. However, you should probably check the hardware requirements for Snow Leopard before you decide to go that route. Or even 10.5 Leopard, for that matter. You may find that your system does not meet the requirements for the newer Mac OS operating system.
