    Default Dell Inspiron 8600 good for Hackintosh?

    Hey everyone I have a Dell Inspiron 8600 that is dual booting Windows XP SP3 and Fedora 10. It has an Intel Pentium M 1500MHz processor. I would tell you more stats but I'm in Linux right now and I can't seem to find more info than the processor. I was just wondering if I would be able to run Hackintosh on this laptop because Mac OSX is by far my favorite operating system. It has the looks and it is very stable. Oh yea, I also am completely fine with taking off Linux if I am able to run Hackintosh. I just really would like to be able to dual-boot Windows and Hackintosh.

    Ok I'm getting all of this from Device Manager in XP. I have 384 MB of RAM(which sucks I think). I have a NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5200. My audio is SigmaTel C-Major Audio. If you need anything I will be happy to tell you. It's just that I usually don't go through stuff like that so it's probable that I didn't mention something you need to know.

    For some reason everytime I try to post my summary on here it says it will be posted when a admin has reviewed it and it still hasn't been posted since last night and I've tried twice.
