    Hi there,

    You could:
    1. Do reading/viewing posts for installation information and instruction.
    2. Pick one installation method best suit your need as there are many ways to approach, be it distros or retail DVD.

    Cheers.

    The reason i ask is because i know what i am asking is very complex and would to get steered in the right direction.

    1. Triple booting is apparently Extremely difficult or impossible according to these forums.

    2. Different versions of mac may work. some wont.

    3. will i need to partition first or whilst installing mac?

    4. there are many different custom thi9ngs like ideb/kelways/retail

    5. i7 need there own specific ways to install

    Just answering a few of these questions would help me start off in the right track as some questions overlap each other. so please a little help is all i ask.

    Thanks to anyone who will help in advanced!

    Hi,
    The complex part is trying to explain it to you
    So this put it at fairly simple terms.

    1&3. Triple boot is not extremely difficult. It could be a bit tricky, depends on what your setup is. There are 3 bootloaders, with their required disk/partition scheme, to be arrange in the chain.
    For multiple disk/multiple os, it's simple as in case of your desktop, but will get trickier with single disc, and need to be prepared ahead with the right disk/partition scheme.

    2&4 Apple retail DVD is made to install in very specific hardware configuration of mac pc, and definitely not to load in non-mac pc, regardless of how close the hardwares are, so different patches/drivers are needed to make it function in various non-mac pc configurations.
    Distro release = retail DVD + Patches/Drivers/Boot/etc..

    Since the pc hardware varieties out there are so great, there is no way a single distro release can provide all the required patches/etc., but rather focus on certain group of hardwares.

    So for recent hardware system it's just a bit harder due to time for patched work/drivers. Your best chance of successful installation would be to find the correct patches/drivers made for your system, either in distro release or in board specific files+retail DVD, and it should already available.

    Hope these clear some for you.

    Regards,
