    Default questions on installing on Dell laptop

    im trying to get OSx86 on my dell inspiron 1200. specs are as follows:
    celeron M 1.3Ghz
    1.25 GB ram
    120GB HD or 40GB HD, whichever need be. windows currently on 120 w/ VMware.
    Mobile intel 915GM/GMS, 910GML Express (video)
    Phillips cdrw/dvd

    hard drive and ram have obviously been upgraded from stock. ive tried loading OSx86 from the install DVD i have but no luck so far. i know its not the DVD, because ive got it installed on my desktop pc and ive had to reinstall numerous times because of it crashing during my escapades trying different drivers for video, etc. when i try on my laptop, i get the initial dvd boot menu, hit F8, type '-v' *enter* and it loads through all that stuff. all the while its spinning the disk. after it brings up the initial blue screen before showing the "Mac OS X loading", it sits there for about 5 seconds and it stops spinning the dvd and it just sits there for all of eternity and goes no further. in case i was unclear, i never see the "Mac OS X loading" screen. any ideas?? it somewhat puzzles me because it runs "ok" under VMware on the same machine, shows the Celeron m 1.3, gig of ram i allowed it, and the 20G "hard drive" i gave it. any ideas?? any help much appreciated.
