    Question Help installing, please!

    Ok, so I have a Dell Optiplex GX280 SFF with a 2.8 GHz P4, 1 gig ram, intel graphics, and a 320 GB HD. I am downloading the iDeneb v1.3 10.5.5 and I have a bunch of questions

    First off, once it is done downloading, how exactly should i burn it? I have Nero, but I have no idea on what exactly to do. Another thing, once I do burn it, what should I do after that? I really have no idea of what to do. The reason I am doing this is because my PowerBook died and I won't be able to fix it any time soon, so this is my substitute. I am pretty computer literate, just not too good when it comes to a pc. I looked around and I am wondering what I should do when it gets to the custom istall part, and what should I do once it's installed and I want to update to 10.5.6?

    1 - burn it with something like NERO, Just search Google under "Burning DVD Images"

    2 - Backup all your data on your XP drive

    3 - Place Burnt disk in drive and it should boot into install (as long as you have the DVD/CD drive set to primary boot)

    4 - Follow the instructions to install

    5 - Read up on this forum about carmelion boot loader so that you can access the XP partition after you have installed mac
