    Default I've never used a Mac before...

    ...and am interested in building a Hackintosh. I've been building PCs since the 90s so I have some experience assembling PCs.

    Question: Do I need a Mac to build a Hackintosh? Specifically, if I buy the Snow Leopard DVD at BestBuy, will a regular PC DVD-ROM drive be able to read it?

    Thanks!

    Anyone? I've tried googling before posting but maybe I'm just not phrasing my search string right. I understand download is a .DMG file but to burn it has to be .ISO.

    Thanks a lot, parky50. I downloaded it and will try to install it. It crashed on my AMD desktop but on my Dell 1525 notebook I got to the Darwin agree-to-terms screen but didn't continue. According to some websites I found, I need to go to disk utility first to format the drive and then select drivers before actually doing the install. I'll write them down.
