    First step: simplify your hardware. Remove 2 gigs of RAM to get you down to 2 gigs total. Remove the Creative sound card. Remove the IDE hard disk. If you have an IDE optical drive, replace it with a SATA drive or use an external USB drive or IDE->SATA converter.

    The less convoluted your hardware setup, the easier it will go. Remember, OS X was designed to work on Macs and only Macs.

    Configure your BIOS correctly, and attempted it with Lawless 10.5.4 or iDeneb 10.5.6. I spent the better part of the month trying to get X on my Phenom based machine and these are the only two distros I could get installed. Your best bet would be to either build another box or to replace your existing mobo and processor with gigabyte + intel.
