Installed iwork08, ilife08 and did all Mac updates works.
I do own a lovely Powerbook though, and own a genuine copy of OS X. 1) First, the Sil3114 driver is shoddy, and the Nforce SATA non-functional, so do yourselves a favor and find a nice cheap IDE drive. THIS IS THE PART WHERE THE DREADED "still waiting for root device" appears.
It takes a decent amount of time, even with a 16x DVD drive, so be patient.
Verbose mode helps because stuff actually comes up every so often to show its doing something before the GUI loads up. Then wait about 20-40 minutes (depending on your selections) to install OS X.
15) Choose a Partition scheme of 1 Partition, name the drive "Leopard" and choose the Journaled File System (not case-sensitive). If you want to hear about WHY sleepycat, read my kernel talk at the bottom. You'll have to dive into the menus, select the one labeled X2000_AND_X3000_HD and the NATIT selection. c) I selected the forcedeth driver under networking, but it seemed to not install properly (thus for the USB copy). If you like reading Japanese anime/manga though, or have any plans of using i Tunes with foreign tag names, keep the translations. 26) With any luck, all will work well, and you will be greeted with the Leopard First-Run nonsense (I really wish they would let you bypass the damn "cute" intro). It won't have any internet connectivity (unless you got lucky and either the Yukon or the forcedeth drivers actually worked.
Now there will be a button labeled "Options" below the big rectangle representing your drive. 16) On the resulting window, make sure MBR is checked. It will warn that your going to erase whatever partitions are on the drive, and that one named Leopard will be created. g) AMD Patches: I selected Patch1 and the processor fix. They didn't in my case) 28) Plug your fancy USB drive in. 29) Open Terminal 30) Change directory to your desktop (cd Desktop) 31) Issue these 3 commands: sudo chown -R root:wheel sudo chmod -R 755 sudo kextload 32) With any luck, the forcedeth kext will load, and System Preferences will pop up an alert you have an unconfigured network card.
