    Should work, try with the latest distros, you will need a patched kernel like voodoo, prepare yourself before install looking similar systems in the HCL and go for it

    Can you post the video card?

    Boot into that dvd, format your partition as extended journaled then you can customize before install

    Question First time tryst with MAC OS

    I am a total noob in case of MAC OS but I have been working with PCs since PCDOS 3.0. Now I want to try installing MAC OS X on my system.
    Hardware specs are as follows:
    AMD PHENOM X3 2.3GHz 3.5 MB Total L2+L3 Cache
    ASUS M3N78-EM Mother Board
    2GB DDR2 PC800 x2 RAM
    500GB Hitachi SATA HDD
    LG Super multi DVD Writer IDE
    On Board graphics nVidia GEFORCE 8300
    On Board Realtek Audio Chip set

    Please let me know the best OS version and what else I may need . Also please point to a step by step tutorial for clean install

    Note: By the way I have downloaded the snowleopard_10a433_serverdvd.dmg will it be OK by the way how to burn the same to DVD I am using WIN XP SP3 OS at present

    Thanking you all in anticipation
