Do I have to reinstall Leopard first? That would be a pain.
Do I need to reinstall T
No.

If you have 10.6 installed, and your OS becomes damaged/corrupted to the point where it needs to be reinstalled, the 10.6 installer will see you have 10.6 already on your drive. No need to reinstall 10.5 first. The only time you would need to install 10.5 first, is on a fresh, OS-less hard drive. Then, you would need to install 10.5 first, and then 10.6 thereafter.

See, that's what I thought too... but MacWorld's review states:

Review: Snow Leopard Review | Mac OS X - Page 1 | Macworld
Ah.

So in that case, Apple is relying on people to be honest when purchasing the $35 of $199 box set copy of Snow Leopard. ;) Similarly, the single user version of Mac OS X can be installed on an infinite number of machines. People who buy the Family Pack for more money are simply being honest.
