I realise I may have to reinstall my OS X of which I have on a USB drive given the CD drive is U/S, but I resist until I have an answer to a question of which is given a U/S CD drive how do I reinstall my applications ?

 

Can I put my applications onto a USB via another computer  and load them that way or can I copy the apps off my existing installation onto say a USB drive and copy them to the new installation whence it's loaded ?

You could use Migration Assistant.

Thanks, I will try that, where the plan is new hdd for the fresh Snow Leopard and I have one of those base station things I can shove the old drive in but keep as a back up.... also have Time Machine and a cloned drive...... Paranoid perhaps but I have lost everything before and it hurts.

Migration Assistant is definitely the way to go. Used it several times with new computers and I think at least once with a re-install. And Migration Assistant is actual built into the Max OS install/setup process, but you can also use it any time later from the Utilities folder in Applications.
