    Default Nooby attempting dual boot. Help?

    Heya everybody. Skye here.
    Anywhooo..I've attempted a Kalyway install before, on a Dell E520, or something, XD, it was years ago.
    Anyway...I have before me, a Dell XPS 630i.
    Exact Specifications are as follows:

    ACPI x64-based PC

    Display adapters:
    ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series
    ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series

    DVD/CD-Rom Drives:
    Optiarc DVD+-RW AD-7200S SCSI CdRom Device

    IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers:
    ATA Channel 0
    ATA Channel 1
    Standard DUal Channel PCI IDE Controller

    Monitors:
    Generic PnP Monitor (it is a Dell 24" Monitor. Native res: 1920x1080)

    Network adapters:
    Bluetooth Device (Personal Area Network)
    Bluetooth Device (RFCOMM Protocol TDI)
    NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller

    Processors:
    Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 Quad CPU Q8200 @ 2.33Ghz
    Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 Quad CPU Q8200 @ 2.33Ghz
    Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 Quad CPU Q8200 @ 2.33Ghz
    Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 Quad CPU Q8200 @ 2.33Ghz

    Sound, video and game controllers:
    ATI High Definition Audio Device
    ATI High Definition Audio Device
    Creative X-Fi Audio Processor (WDM)

    Storage controllers:
    ASFDU67I IDE Controller
    NVIDIA nForce RAID Controller
    NVIDIA nForce Serial ATA Controller
    NVIDIA nForce Serial ATA Controller

    (I carry two 500GB drives. Currently in Raid 0 configuration I believe, and for some reason, I formatted them into three different partitions, while they were in that configuration still. Thus, leading to an unstable system when I write to certain partitions. XD)

    Hope that's enough for all you top notch geniuses to figure out what I need for this to work. I dont want to screw up my system like I did last time XD.
    I'm running Windows 7, build 7100.
    The core is a 64 bit processor, and I DO have 6GB of ram, I do not know if it is mandatory to possess a 64-bit copy of Mac, if that even exists, XD, but ehh...I know how fluent mac's run even with just 2-3 GB of ram, so it's not crucial .
    I just basically want to run it, test it, see if I can get it to work something proper on this comp. Planning on buying a macbook soon, so I want to do some fiddling ^^.
    I do have a Mac OSX Leopard disc in my possession, which belongs to the iMac that is in my house. It is a retail disc, bought it a few weeks after leopard came out.

    Soo yeah...what do I need to do to get this working? Step by step tutorials are appreciated ^_^, I'm somewhat new to it, and no, I dont have the slightest idea of how to really run linux. , i heard that's more for a power user.

    Thankyou in advance all ^^
    ~Skye
