    Well I think you wont have trouble with the installation, but I think theres no support for your video card, and wifi maybe, research a bit about those, and report back your progress if you finally install XxX distro

    Default Sorry for the late answer

    Installation options:
    What i did was to use the xxx 10.5.6 distro and only use the kext for the laptopdisplay and some fixes and tools that is included.
    Set ACHI in bios

    Mostly defaults installation options but with following kexts

    Lan: intel82566mm
    Grafix: Laptopdisplay got 1280x800 Q after tweak
    Wifi non working kext
    Sound VoodooIntel2200BG-05
    Bluetoth: Dellbluetoothhci

    Other kexts:
    acpips2nub
    appleacpibatterymanager
    applehda
    appleps2controller
    dsmos
    hdaenabler
    intelcpupmdisabler
    ambiosresolver



    I did fix the resolution to 1280x800 and i got it to work.

    After installation i used osx86tools and enabled Quartz then after that reeboot i used the osx86tools to edit the efi string for the display to use 1280x800 btw im using the latest chamelon bootloader.

    Now it all works but i have not used any kext for the 4500 that a lot of people tak about cause i could not get that to work so instead i used the one that in the distro by name laptopdisplay........
