    Default MAC OS X Leopard 10.6 Installation

    Hello guys,
    First the forum looks beautiful, I thought it was an IPBoard forum but turned out to be a Vbulletin forum and it looks awesome.

    I recently thought of installing MAC OS X 10.6 on my Desktop and when searched the web I found thousands of tutorials and every tutorial showing a different way of doing so.
    So I got really confused.
    Ok, so here is my question.
    Computer Config
    Intel Core i7 920 OCed 3.84GHz
    Asus P6T Deluxe(Plain Deluxe not Deluxe v2) x58 LGA 1366
    Corsair Dominator 6Gb 3x2Gb DDR3 1600MHz
    XFX Nvidia GTX 275
    OCZ Vertex II 90GB SATA II
    Western Digital Caviar Black 750GB SATA II
    Seasonic SS 750W
    Cooler Master HAF 932
    LG 2360v

    So I have Windows 7 installed on my OCZ SSD and I have Ubuntu 10.4 installed on my 750GB Caviar Black, and GRUB is loaded from my 750GB, so my primary boot disk is the WD 750GB Drive.
    I have ordered another 250GB specifically for MAC installation and I have the OS X 10.6 Disk.

    So how should I proceed with the MAC installation, which guide would be highly recommended by you and also I want to keep all my operating systems, how can I do that.
    Please help me out.
    How can I keep Windows 7, Ubuntu 10.4 and Leopard at the same time.
    Please help me out and tell me anything that I should know.

    Here is a guide that you can follow:

    [GUIDE] *NEW* Snow Leopard Retail on ASUS P6T Deluxe V1&V2 - InsanelyMac Forum

    I used this to help install SL on a friends P6T Deluxe V2 (the guide is for both V1 and V2).

    When you go to do the install the best thing would be to unplug your other drives and just have the one drive available for SL.

    After you are done, Chameleon will be installed to the boot sector of this drive and it can then act as your boot manager going forward. Set this drive to be your first boot device and when the system hits Chameleon it will display all of the other OS's that are installed and available on your system (without having to mess around with any Grub menu configuration).

    If you want Grub to continue to be your boot manager then you will have to do some more digging as I have never tried to set that up. But I would use Chameleon as it just plain easy.

    Note: After you have read through the main guide scroll down to the part where it talks about installation "No Mac Required". Also, over clocked systems do not always work very well in the Hackintosh world, you can try, but you might get kernel panics.

    Ok so I tried the installation from the given guide,
    I bought a new 250GB Seaggate Barracuda and I bought a Mac OS X DVD 10.6.4 Snow Leopard from a friend who owns a Macbook Pro.
    So everything is fine till I select the language and after that I get a prompt saying "Sorry MAC OS X cannot be installed on this computer and two options for restart and restore from backup" I have done the GUID partitioning and all the stuff mentioned.
    Please guys help me since I have spent on a new HDD specially for MAC OS X.
