    Default How to switch kernels?

    so all day I've been trying to get a variety of different OSX86 distros to work with my notebook, a Compaq CQ50-106ca.

    All of them have been based on the leopard 10.5.6 version.

    My important notebook specs are as follows:
    AMD turion 2.0ghz dual core, SSE2, SSE3 compatible
    3 gb ram
    nvidia 8200M G 256mb

    I'm mostly just really confused.

    (using ideneb) I go into verbose mode, and this comes up

    loading Darwin /x86
    loading kernel.mach_kernel
    loading HFS+ file:[mach_kernel] from 4230450
    loading HFS+ file:[mach_kernel] from 4230450
    loading drivers: loading from [/system/library/extensios.mkext
    and then it just hangs...

    Upon what I've found out means that the kernel isn't working with the AMD architecture.

    I know it comes with 4 or 5 different kernels, how do I switch it, exactly? can it be done in the installation, or does it have to be patched?

    Bear with me here, I'm kind of inexperienced with Unix (besides a simple ubuntu install)

    Maybe this distro is not compatible with your system, did you try cpus=1 -v? or try with Kalyway or Leo4all, then in the installation choose a patched kernel like voodoo or speedstep
