Well, you can upgrade into Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard but not to Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, because Snow Leopard requires and Intel Machine. So upgrade into Leopard, Just buy the Leopard Retail Disks, put it into your Mac and follow the on-screen instructions to upgrade. (You cannot download Leopard from internet)

I'd also recommend you to upgrade RAM to 1GB or more for good performance. You can buy RAM from here

(Also You must have 10+ GB Free Space and DVD drive to install Leopard)
