Got it installed but have a few questions
Recently I installed the Kalyway 10.5.2 distro. I had a few problems getting it running but in the end I got it working. One issue was that my keyboard did not work. Turns out having a USB Mouse and a PS/2 Keyboard was not Mac friendly. Luckily I had a USB to PS/2 converter for the mouse and after a quick reboot both worked together. The biggest problem was that every drop down menu was white. I googled this and found quite a few people had this issue and the fix was to update to 10.5.3. So I did that and it worked great. However, I wasn't satisfied yet. The dock was not animated until I clicked a button to use it. I don't know if by default the dock icons are not supposed to get bigger as you scroll your mouse of them or not. Every Mac I've seen had that effect working. I think I messed up my installation. I accidentally chose both Nvidia 320 MB and Nvidia Default graphics drivers. Could this have messed up something?
I'm about to re-install Mac OS X using the iATKOS v7 10.5.7 distro and see if it goes any better. Has anyone tried this version with success? What drivers do you recommend? Here are my PC specs if anyone is interested.
HDD: Western Digital Caviar SE WD1600AAJS 160GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - OEM

All in all, my current hardware worked just fine with the Kalyway 10.5.2. OSX86Project had a compatibilty sheet saying my mobo worked fine but sound didn't work. But it worked for me no problem.
