    Default Should I Install Hackintosh??

    I want to try out Leopard using the Kalyway disc. I read about it in Lifehacker. The tutorial said something about setting the BIOS and then inserting the DVD. Which options should I select in the Kalyway disc? I have an MSI motherboard.
    Also how much space is required for installing it?
    I have 120 GB but it is full of things, I have done a separate empty partition on my HD of 20 GB will it be enough?

    Here is my PC setup:

    Operating System: Windows Vista ™ Ultimate Professional 6.00.6000

    hmm via chipset, its hard to say if it gonna work, you can try tho, basically insert the dvd, select your language, format your partition as extended journaled, customize your installation with a Patched Kernel like Modbin or Speedstep, you can also select via chipset, and then install... good luck
