Objective2: Collect Clones/Images of Boot-132 USB Loaders for Different Motherboards/Chipsets
Objective3: Create Boot-132 Disk Partition Loaders
First of all, kudos to all the think tanks who came from this forum and the whole OSx86 Community especially to DFE for this breakthrough Boot-132 Loader. I'm just here to help provide a clean documentation.
For Boot-132 Disc Loaders, f41qu3 initiated the documentation via this thread.
Now the collections (lifted most from sonotone's thread and that of f41qu3's):

Original/Generic - with the minimum required kexts.
Please share other Boot-132.ISOs.
For Boot-132 USB Loaders, stickpin shared his knowledge on this thread.
Download here the image/clone of my usb-boot-132. To use this with other motherboards, just add/remove any necessary kext(s) in the INITRD.IMG. Just make sure that the last 4 lines of the Info.plist of the kext looks like this:
<key>OSBundleRequired</key> <string>Root</string> </dict> </plist>Or better yet, replace the whole INITRD.IMG w/ the one from your working Boot-132 Disc. The advantage of this is you would no longer be needing a Windows OS. Just restore this to your USB-FlashDisk or to a partition of your HardDisk.
Create a Boot-132 Disk Partition Loader
This is the product of my experimentation. Pre-requisite is a Boot-132 USB Loader.
You may want to check this boot-132 in action video clip. Successfully dual-booting vanilla Leopard with WinXP.
By following this guide by llauqsd, you won't be needing to burn Boot-132 to a CD, thus no more disc-swapping.
For new retail leopard installs, you can already create a Boot-132 Disk Partition Loader. Here's how it goes:
During install, after the Choose Install Language window, run Disk Utility.
Make two (2) partitions of your target Hard Disk. First partition is for the Boot-132 so that means you only need about 0.5GB (or even smaller). Then all the rest of the space goes to the second partition for you Mac OS Leopard.
Now plug-in your Boot-132 USB Loader. Then restore it to the first partition of your Hard Disk. Make sure you check the "Erase destination" option. After the restore, you can now eject the USB.
Then proceed with the Leopard install. After successful installation, open the Terminal application before your computer automatically restarts (mine doesn't automatically restarts).
Now we have to make the first partition of your Hard Disk, our Boot-132 Disk Partition Loader, active. In Terminal, enter the following:
diskutil list (lists your computers Hard Disk(s) and corresponding partition(s): take note of the Hard Disk where you have the partitions for the Boot-132 and your newly installed Leopard)
fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0 (where 0 is the appropriate disk identifier) (if ever you get the "fdisk: could not open MBR file ..." error, just ignore it)
f 1 (where 1 is the correct partition number for your Boot-132)
Now you can reboot and if all goes well, you will get to choose to boot your newly installed Retail Leopard.
Good luck and hopefully (as much as possible), comments would be constructive and not destructive.
