Question Upgrading a Mac in time for OS X Lion

It's been a while since I've been here... Anyway I have a question about upgrading my friends Macbook since I know (almost) nothing about OSX.

As some may know, Mr. Jobs has announced the release date of OS X Lion (v10.7) to be next month. I'm trying to find an upgrade path to OS X Lion for a Macbook running OS X Tiger (v10.4) and a Core 2 Duo CPU.

I have heard that Lion will only be available through the App Store, which would mean having to upgrade to Snow Leopard (v10.6) first. Would Tiger -> Snow Leopard (Clean installation) -> Lion (When it releases) be my best/only option?

I think you have to upgrade through them all before you can upgrade to 10.7.
Like 10.5>10.6>10.7.

I read it is possible to upgrade to 10.6 from 10.4, but it's against Apple's EULA.
