    Firstly, that's the 10.1.5 update.

    There are a couple of reasons why it would be grayed out. One is if you are already running 10.1.5 (check this by selecting About This Mac in the apple menu) or that you haven't 'authenticated' the installer by clicking the little padlock and entering an administrator password.

    I've done this a lot of times since moving to OS X. I'll find myself wondering why a dialogue is grayed out, and it will take a moment to notice the little padlock in the corner is 'latched'.

    There are a couple of minor updates that you must apply to 10.1 before you can upgrade it to 10.1.5. Either use Software Update, or go to http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/apple/ to get them. You will need the security update from 10/24/01 and the installer update (I think that's all).

    IIRC, you have to install the security update before you can install the installer update. After both of those have been done, you should be able to install the 10.1.5 upgrade.
