    I am also looking for a way to install Leopard onto my AMD athlon 3400+ PC.

    I'm D/Lint the torrent thats called something like "flat install for windows" which looks to me the best option as it has instructions & needs no patching.

    Anybody give me a heads up if they've succeeded with this file/AMD cpu?

    A patched Intel/AMD SSE2/SSE3 DVD will be available soon by ToH.

    God I can't stand it when people answer like morons. First of all, it's "Mac" and not "MAC" dipshit. Second of all, he didn't ask you whether he should buy a "MAC" or not. OP, if i where you, I'd head over to osx86scene.com and go to the "HOW-TO's" section, plenty of people have Leopard running on AMD boxes and have posted tutorials. Hope this helps.

    Is this an Athlon XP 3400+?? (Can't remember if they went up that high, I only remember 3200+) If it's an AMD 64 3400+ you can install Leopard provided all your other hardware is supported. It's not as simple as putting windows on your machine, you have hardware that the OS was not written to run on and while you may still be able to run it, you may need patches and fixes to get it up and running.

    AMD 64 3400+ will work fine. Sempron 3400+ in socket 754 will also work AFAIK. Sempron/Socket A is unsupported, though. (Athlon XP 3400+ won't work, because it doesn't exist.)

    BTW, "MAC" stands for Media Address Control, and not Macintosh.

    Yes, but it's not for the lighthearted or uninitiated at this point, it's not as easy as it is for Tiger, there is no pre-built DVD's ready yet to the public, that I have found, at least not for the AMD platform, yet.
    I have an AMD turion 64X2 1.8GHZ processor and 2 GB of ram. Are there any ways to do this?
    see my previous statement, also others may need your motherboard specs to help you out along with that info.
    Should i install Tiger first and then install leopard on top of that?
    from what I understand that is the easiest way of doing it, (as you'll need to create the DVD yourself for Leopard,) but there are other methods on how to go about doing this.
    Is it even possible to install Mac OS X on a pc?
    of course or there wouldn't be so many sites about it.
    Is there a way i can dual boot OS X and Vista?
    yes, but it's not all that great an idea to do so, beside why would you want to keep vista?
    Will i need any special drivers or anything?
    most likely, just as you do for any operating system
    Is it going to cost anything?
    Depends on what you have and what you're planning on doing
    PLEASE HELP ME OUT!!!! Thanks in advance...
    Hope this helps. Your quite welcome. Also, another easier way would be to purchase a used computer, (shameless plug here, I happen to have a Powerbook I'm selling if your in the US and are interested, PM me,) that is capable of installing Leopard on it and use that instead. As all you'll need is that and the operating system itself and there is many ways to come up with that currently. (Including via my shamelss plug.)
