    -2x dual core 80556K, Xeon Woodcrest, 5140@ 2.33GHz (there's two separate processors inside..)

    -geforce 7600gt 256mb ddr3

    -Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx Gigabit Controller (eithernet adapter)

    -2x hds

    if any further info is needed ask.

    Alright down to bussiness...

    i did a search and i didnt find any one else who tryed on this platform so i figured id start a thread...

    Ive tried using versions of kalyway and other makes of leopard in the past on a old computer always to get screwed because of a messed up boot loader.. i have yet to try on this pc and if you can help with me getting started that would be lovely..

    what i'd like to do is keep my xp on one hd and put leopard on the second...

    Note: i have access to a retail leopard disk.

    ~ okay lets start...

    what distribution / guide/package should i start downloading if any.

    Suggestions welcome. thanks ^^

    I would suggest iDeneb as a start, its a great disk and very organized. Also try iPC and Kalyway, unfortunetly my latest install was a Dell AMD so I had to use iPC instead of iDeneb (didnt have the proper hardware id's, and I was to lazy to fix it

    As far as installing each os on the harddrives, sounds perfectly fine. Just make sure they are hookedup and jumpers are set correctly, and you can see them in bios. Once that is done partition each accordingly i suggest fat32 for both, then the mac one use the mac disk utility to format it Mac Journaled.

    Just ask if you need any help after that!
