    Default New Computer - Questions..

    Firstly, I would like to apologize if I didn't post this in the right spot. I just joined, and not totally sure where everything yet.

    I just purchased a Inspiron 530.
    I'm wondering if I am able to install a Mac operating system on it. I would like Leopard if possible. I would also like to be able to dual boot it while I make the transition to Mac from Windows.
    Is this possible? I've seen a couple of posts on here. But I am unfamilar with any of the software reffered to, or any of the mods/tweeks discussed.
    I would appreciate it if someone could explain to me if this is possible on my system, and explain in detail how to go about doing so or directing me to information or a guide indicating how to do so.

    Thanks again,
    NOD62

    Default Ah.

    Interesting. Well, I'm all for it. xD
    So is this a package deal, or is this an actual free operating system itself?
