10.6.6 is here: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1343

Just type the version number in their search bar. If that one needs a previous version, search for it next. You seem to be way behind in updates.

I think you have to pay for the Snow Leopard update for OSX. It's $29 depending on where you are. Also you won't be able to run it if your MBP uses a PowerPC based CPU; Intel CPU's only.

like 10.7 Lion, you must purchase 10.6 Snow Leopard.

In the windows world this would be Windows Vista and Windows 7, not just a little Service Pack.

There's a lot of erroneous information here. You can not directly download an upgrade from 10.5.x to 10.6.x.

Major OS updates must be purchased. Snow Leopard is a $29 upgrade from Leopard that you should be able to obtain from Apple or any authorized reseller. You can also purchase Lion on a USB key for $69 if you want to upgrade directly to the newest version.
