The Easiest Solution
Authored by: kd8cyb on Feb 03, '10 07:21:05PM
It is so much easier just to edit the plist that Installer.app reads:
sudo pico /System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist
Change, e.g.,
	<key>ProductUserVisibleVersion</key>
	<string>10.5.8</string>
	<key>ProductVersion</key>
	<string>10.5.8</string>
to
	<key>ProductUserVisibleVersion</key>
	<string>10.6</string>
	<key>ProductVersion</key>
	<string>10.6</string>
if you want to fool Installer.app into thinking you have OS 10.6.
