    Default Installation questions

    I'm running a Lenovo Thinkpad t61 ( not the p version, whatever thats supposed to mean)

    Stats:
    Intel Core Duo T7700 @ 2.4ghz
    NVIDIA Quadro NVS 140m
    Intel 82566MM Gigabit Network
    Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG
    (I'll post anything else if needed)

    I'm pretty sure my computer can run Leopard (iirc I have the same processor as those macbooks out there) I just have a few questions relating to the installing the OS and such.

    First, do I have to have anything specific to burn the install DVD? Can I just use nero on vista? I've read in places that you have to use transmac, which seems a bit off for me.

    Second, I'm downloading Leo4all, but I already have a image on my hard drive, can I install using that image? Or do I have to use iDeneb or Leo4all?

    Thirdly, I've been trying to find a good triple boot tutorial, I found one a while back, but seem to have lost it, is it possible to triple boot Leopard, Ubuntu and Vista? Or should I just not bother and boot camp vista and Leopard together?

    Finally, is there a link to a tutorial I should use? I intend to use this but I'm not sure if I should use it with the image I downloaded.

    Thanks for any help.

    1- Nero will work, just burn it in low speed

    2- Thats retail version, you can try leo4all or ideneb cuz is easier, then you can try retail ;D or if you wanna try retail now, check this link

    3- You can triple boot, google it, that tuto will help you.

    P.S. You will have problems with wireless ;P

    Yeeaaah... I think I'll go with leo4all then, that tutorial is over my head.

    Relating to my wireless, by "problems" do you mean I'm not going to have any wireless at all? Or will I just have to do some fiddling?

    It's not a big deal for me, since I'll probabbly just dual boot it with vista.

    One last question, I managed to forget in the original post, what is the smallest amount of hard drive space I should give Leopard?

    Well I used like 80Gb, for a light use I guess like 20gb will work, about your wireless is work in progress, but I dunno if is working right now, take a look here
