    Default New to Mac installs, please help

    I was surfing the other day using win7 and IE8 when IE8 locked up on me for the ten billionth time. I am a devout MS user and have never used Macs before. I do alot with my PC and I know what Im doing with it but I am tired of the stability issues. So I said to myself well why not let Mac prove what all its users have been saying for years...

    So I tried to Mac on my PC and was delighted to learn of the one step installs...AS IF.

    My system is as follows
    ASUS P5N-D LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 750i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard
    EVGA 01G-P3-N809-AR GeForce 8800GT AKIMBO 1GB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI
    Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz 6MB L2 Cache LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor
    GeIL 4GB(2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Desktop Memory

    I tried iATKOS v1.0i with no luck, I can boot with the DVD but once I go to install I get the briefest of flashes of the apple logo before it reboots. (-f does nothing different, I saw that on some other forum but I dont think it has anything to do with iATKOS v1.0i, again, Im not sure)

    I also tried Kalyway_10.5.2_DVD_Intel_Amd with no success. I eventually reach an area where it says "Still waiting for root device" when I try to install and nothing else happens. One forum said I needed AHCI enabled but that option is not in my bios. Can someone PLEASE help me? You may uhser in a apple convert for your trouble.

    I can also be reached by IM @,
