    Default Compaq Presario SR5633WM-B OSX compatitble?

    My last thread I was hoping to get an HP Pavilion, but unfortunately I didn't get that one. I ended up getting a Compaq Presario SR5633WM-B with the following:

    2.2 GHz Intel Pentium Dual-Core Desktop Processor E2220
    2 GB of DDR2 system memory
    320 GB hard drive, 7200 rpm
    32-bit OS
    Vista Home Premium Edition SP1

    Will this work with Leopard? (If you need more info let me know.) If so can I use the original Leopard discs or do I have to download the whole OS in order to install it on my PC? If I have to download can someone make a suggestion? I'm a complete newbie to this. I would also like to make a dual boot so I can choose either Windows or Mac.

    What's a "distro" and can this end up frying my motherboard if for some reason it doesn't work with my computer?

    Nah it wont @.@, if it doesnt work just have to fix your bootloader with your windows disc.

    Try a distribution like iatkos or ideneb, good luck
