I looked up the wiki on this project and according to it, there are no issues with any of my parts. I am going to try this.

If you do your research, it'll work. If you're building a box specifically for this you'll want to read the Insanely Mac forums up and down to get the right parts.

Yeah, I checked wiki before I bought parts fot the machine in my sig. As I've already said I was able to get a fully working installation in less than 30minutes on this hardware. No problems at all.

Just installed it on my D975XBX2 (Intel BadAxe2) setup with practically zero problems. After installing OSX, I had to install NVInject and then AppleHDA to get sound working, but once I did that, things work perfect.

I think I'm gonna go back to Vista 32. I don't like how you can't maximize windows. But the overall look is MUCH cleaner on Leopard. Not a bad OS. Maybe I'll install it on my secondary hard drive and play around with it.

actually, I just installed firefox 3 for the mac, and I'm really starting to like OSX a lot. I think I'll install open office and stick with it for a few weeks. Things like Mail, photos, calendar, and music are much more accessible.

Have you tried out Office 2008 for Mac? Office for Mac is different than Office for Windows, but in a good way. You will have to check it out to see what I mean.

I haven't tried FF3 for Mac yet, but since somebody is raving about it, I might as well try it out. I wonder how much better/worse it is compared to Safari . . .

BTW, what do you mean "much more accessible"? Just curious about your experience with OSX.

I never looked at anything on the Wiki and installed it without any hitches. Guess I got so excited about having OSX again I just didn't care lol. I'm still just blown away that there were no problems during or after the install.

The same thing happened to me. I tried it for a few weeks which has now turned into months. I think it's a strong OS as far as productivity goes.

OSX looks a lot cleaner for me too (does anyone else think their desktop graphics appear more crisp in OSX than vista? i do, it's weird)

looks to be an awesome OS for everyday stuff.

The only thing that OSX hasn't provided is a good gaming environment but for everything else, it's perfect. I haven't been home all week, so I'll be glad to work on OSX later tonight.
