[Hackint0sh Support] Leopard won't work on Pentium 4
I'm having a problem with my PC running Leopard. As I've done some searching I realize that the vanilla kernel is not compatible with Pentium 4 PC's. The issue I have is that because I can't use the vanilla kernel I'm not able to keep it from freezing up. I did a test last night, and every other time I booted up OSX it just froze up on boot. I did this about 6 times. I unplugged hardware and that did nothing.
Someone said it might be because Tiger was able to run 32-bit systems and Leopard has trouble running 32-bit systems so that's why there is the vanilla kernel.
Others have said that if I use iATKOS with the r2 ppf patch then I'll be able to run it just fine. The only issue I have is that I'd rather not have to create another disk with the patch within the iso, and when I used iATKOSv1.0 it did not install correctly, so I used Kalway's version of 10.5.1 and that worked fine.
If there is a quick fix for this then I'd be very appreciative if you wouldn't mind to help help me with this or lend your opinion on this.

Model: HP Compaq dx2000 MT
