You can't upgrade, you must install from scratch. Make a new partition and install Snow Leopard on it. Once you're satisfied that it works you can merge the two partitions or delete the Leopard partition or whatever. If your drive is GUID partitioned you can do this with Disk Utility.

If it's MBR partitioned then I don't know what you can use. Probably gparted.
