Macbook restore questions...

Hey guys, trying to restore my 2007 Macbook 13.3" (Santa Rosa Edition) to the original state. I am now running the latest version of snow leopard 10.6.8. Do I need to install the original install 10.5 osx disc's that came with it then upgrade to snow leopard or can I just install snow leopard? I'm not sure if the original disc's have any bundled applications that came with the computer. I have two original 10.5 install disc's, and the snow leopard install disc. I just want to make sure I'm doing an install that includes all the software that came with it and end up with 10.6.8. Thanks for any help with this....

If you have a retail snow leopard install disc just install that and run the 10.6.8 combo update.

Um, the original disks would have iLife on, right? If so, a retail SL disk will not have those apps. Do you need iLife?
