Help: Win7 User Installing Snow Leopard on MacBook

Hey everyone,

My wife has a 2006 Macbook, and I've recently upgraded the RAM (2GB) and purchased a new battery for it. The computer runs OS X Tiger right now, and I've got a physical copy of Snow Leopard on the way.

I'm primarily a Windows user so I'm unfamiliar with the upgrade/install process for OS X. Can you guys and gals give me an idea of what to expect and do when the disc arrives? Will this be a clean install of Snow Leopard since I don't have Leopard to upgrade from? Those are the types of questions I have. Any help from experienced users would be much appreciated.
