    Lawless 10.5.4 or ideneb 10.5.6

    Understand that running a Hackint0sh on AMD hardware is a fragile business. You have to prep your hardware just right:

    - if you have IDE peripherals, get rid of cable select and correctly jumper them to master and slave. Even doing this, you may need to use an external USB optical drive for the install.
    - if you have a SATA hard disk drive, chose ACHI mode in Bios.
    - don't try and run more than 2 gigs of RAM.

    All things I learned the hard way. Be very careful which options you chose when installing as this may mean the difference between success and failure.

    For you: Sound (ALC888), Graphics (nVidia inject that matches the amount of video ram your card has), Voodoo 9.5 kernal, whatever chipset matches the one on your motherboard, acpi fix, seatbelt fix. Chose OSx86 Tools, kext helper, pacifist, xbench on your applications.

    See if that works.

    Don't over reach. Use a single partition on your hard drive and don't try to dual boot. If you want to dual boot, leave your existing windows install alone and try the install on an external USB hard disk. If it works, just change your boot sequence in BIOS to pick which drive to boot from. This is generally a safer approach as you won't brick your system with a failed install.
