    Exclamation Hardware good enough?

    Dell Optiplex GX270
    Mobo: FoxConn L S-36
    Processor: Intel Pentium 4 2.8 Ghz Single-Core
    HDD: WD Caviar 120 Gig
    Video: Nvidia P117 512 Mb (also mobo has built in video)
    Ram: 4x256Mb Nanya DDR MHz

    Should I even try to hack it?
    Also I have seen that some hacks (maybe all) use a mac or a hackintosh, of which i have none of.

    Question Plz Help :(

    Tnx for the info, but even though I used the onboard video card, I'm still getting the same issue.

    While installing Leopard 10.5.6
    "panic(cpu 0 caller 0x002d950sd): "nfs_boot_init failed with 6\n"@/VoodooKernel/xnu-1228.7.58/bsd/nfs/nfs_vfsops.c:851"

    Then there are a lot of numbers like 0x154187c8 (I think they're mem. banks) and then it says "Backtrace terminated-invalid frame pointer 0

    Does this mean that the processor is incompatible? I mean I get to a screen with the Apple logo in the background with some info (listed above) in the foreground. So does this mean that I can run it if I get to this screen? Do I just need a bios configuration change?

    I've never used Mac OS ever...I would like to try to use it but don't want to pay $$$$$.

    ***EDIT***
    The integrated graphics is "Intel Extreme Graphics 2"
    But again I still GET visual, which makes me think that there is another fault.

    I think that my bios is too simple, because I can't find it anywhere, but I can find it on my own computer build.
