D630 unable to get four distros installed
I am a complete noob to this, but I have a D630 and I have tried four distros so far today without success. The closest I come is completing the installation, rebooting and ending at a black screen. My D630 has the Intel GMA965 display chipset, the closest I see is 950 although I believe Leo 10.5.6 has the 965 driver.
Here is what happens with each distro:
Leo 10.5.6 get to the part where I customize the install, choose my drivers, let it check the install DVD or skip, and it errors out saying it cannot install OS X on my system, every time. This is the only distro that has the Intel 965 display drivers I believe.
Kalyway 10.5.2 get it installed, reboot, black screen.
iAtkos 5i gets installed, but will not boot into gui, no network adapaters found.
iDeneb 1.3 10.5.5 installed, reboot, black screen.
I have the appropriate things disabled in the BIOS, my BIOS version I believe is A07.
My system has a 160G drive and 8G of RAM, 2GHz Core 2 Duo.
How can I get one of these distros installed?
Ok I can now get the distros installed, problem is that none of them seem to contatin drivers for my intel wifi or Broadcom ethernet, despite choosing them from the Leo install. How can I get the drivers installed now?

What distro finally worked for you? My D630 is giving me hell- each distro I try fails somehow. Could you let me know which one you used, and what options you chose to get it to run?
ThinkPad T42p- Tiger 10.4.8
PM 2.0 / 2GB / 80GB
ATI Radeon 9600 Mobility 128MB-
Atheros 802.11 a/b/g-
can't get nuthin to work
What Bios settings & boot switches did you use for getting OS.. installed ?
I always get a kernel panic shortly after inserting the Hack..osh 10.5.5 or 10.5.6 installation DVD.
The -v CPUS=2 switches were not successful for me.
