Availability of Leopard 10.5

Is it still possible to get a copy of Leopard 10.5 for use on a G5? I understand that Snow Leopard requires an Intel Mac.

Correct, Snow Leopard requires an Intel Mac,

Call Apple and ask that very same question.

Theoretically, it should be still available

Go to the Apple Store online. Find the phone number and call. It's not listed on the web page.
