    Yes, how much trouble is depend on your chipsets, which you forgot to mention, and no, I don't need anything yet, but you will need to know that part so you can get OSX installed.

    Yes, that helps.
    It's the troublesome southbridge chipsets that doesn't help much.
    It would depend on what your system hardware configuration.

    Maybe some distro releases would be easier to start with?
    If you can find copies of Hazard Intel/AMD or iAtkos S3 to give it a shot.

    Cheers

    This system is very similar to my own, which I just got leopard running on late last week... Am about to attempt to get SL up on it as well...

    For the leopard install, I went with iDeneb 1.6 (Lite)... Selected the Voodoo kernel, a fix to get my USB keyboard and mouse working, the seatbelt patch, and the AppleGenericSPATA (sp? something like that...) chipset drivers... All running on a virtual machine using VMWare Workstation.

    Details of the process can be found in the leopard forum under "Distributions"

    Thanks for coming in with your suggestion.
    No wonder the nForce 430 sounds so familiar but I just could not remember
    I've answered so many questions with different hardware so can't remember them all

    BTW, how is your system running in VMWare? Does the overhead slow it down too much?

    Thanks again.

    Because I'm only running the VM with one core it's not the speediest system, but the lag is only a second or two when doing something like clicking an icon on the dashboard before it bounces around and opens the program... Long as I don't have a bunch of stuff running on XP it works fine

    Tonight I start my SL project! Mwahahahaha

    What is the exact distribution I have to use? For all I've used, Voodoo vanilla kernel not working. And what are the options I have to activate your installation.
