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?
By the way...
I also forgot to add that I want to keep my XP part fully in-tact
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

I burned it and now it starts and gets to the apple grey screen, but the wheel stops spinning. if i do -v, it gets stuck at something about internet
Did you get the installation or not yet? did you try with another distro? maybe kalyway or leo4all
