    Processor Number*

    I have tried before, but i failed miserably.
    I use mac osx, linux, and windows on a daily basis also, and i know my way around installing OS's, but this has defeated me.

    Default Working, but i still need stuff.

    I installed with the Ideneb with 10.5.6 and i can boot up and use the system. However, i have no sound, no video drivers, and no wireless access. I have a ati 3100 graphics card, an atheros 5008 wireless card, and no idea about the sound card.

    In the install options i added the atheros drivers, but this did nothing.

    Is there any Kexts or ways around this so i can get it working fully?

    Run OSX86Tools and run LSPCI ... this will give what's detected in your rig ..

    Default lspci

    the problem is, when i am on my os x, i cannot connect to the internet, even after selecting in the install options what i need. I got sound working however.

    01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RS780MC [Radeon HD 3100Graphics]
    02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88E8040 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller (rev 12)
    06:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR5008 Wireless NetworkAdapter (rev 01)

    I pulled this up from my linux install.
    None of this seems supported. I would love to find some Kexts and install using OSX86tools, but google searches have come up with nothing.

    Check here for the marvel yukon

    For video, start reading here

    For wireless, seems like it should works out the box, try asking to nawcom, on irc, irc.osx86.hu #hackint0sh

    maybe if you get LAN working can get the right kext with osx86 tools, and you need to get your audio chipset too to help you
