It is my pleasure to introduce Galaxy's great slimbuild package. This lets you easily create boot-132 CDs with your choice of kexts and optional kernel.
To use, unzip somewhere, and place your kexts in 'Extensions' and, optionally, a kernel in 'Kernel'. (This can be named anything which starts 'mach_kernel' - so mach_kernel, mach_kernel.patched, mach_kernel.voodoo or whatever).
Then run the slimbuild script as root:
Please read the output and make sure you got no errors. Then look in the ISO directory and you should have a shiny new Boot-132 CD
All work by Galaxy, i'm just the messenger Enjoy!

in order to utilize a hacked kernel to boot your retail dvd take note of the name of your kernel ie mach_kernel.voodoo or just mach_kernel if you chose to name it that. at the darwin boot prompt simply enter rd(0,0)/mach_kernel.voodoo as the first boot flag, it MUST be before any other flags as this is the convention for specifying a kernel to boot-132 and boot up as usual! Note the ramdisk number *may* vary so if rd(0,0) does not work try rd(0,1). Good Luck!
Also Special Thanks to Galaxy

I just don't want to install updates and worry about my mac not booting after next reboot...

And with the new Voodoo's on-the-fly AMD support, it will be also avaible for AMD systems.
Anyway, thanks for this good script ~Galaxy.
PS: if you have a good results with you ISO, you can share it for the next: (i hope it does not look like kind of promotion )

UPDATE: On a side note it appears that users may have an issue where the preboot cd will only boot itself if this issue appears for you at the darwin boot prompt that shows "Slimbuild-Preboot" hit the ESC key and you can then eject the preboot disk and nsert your retail disk and enter the proper device hex code. In the future a graphical boot selector will be available to simplify this process. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

One thing to note however, I will be doing a guide up on this soon, is that certain kernel extensions are already present in the dvd. In the case of things like IOATAFamily etc. one needs to make some minute modifications to their extra extensions by either increasing (or adding) a probe score and or increasing the version number of the extension in question such that it loads instead of the vanilla driver present on the system. There is also another concept whereby one can use a plist only kernel extension to simply extend the matching functionality of a certain vanilla driver that needs no binary modifications. The plist only method works for any extensions which don't require a binary modification. The IOKit is a fairly flexible system in such cases.

InstaHackintosh is designed for creating a hacked install disk. Slimbuild's purpose is to provide the user with a preboot disk which can boot an unmodified retail install DVD.
INSTAHackintosh's primary design is CUSTOM CREATION.
Custom creation means You decide what to do.
Including Just the Latest Updates.
Results in Fully Updated Retail Leopard.
10.5.0 to 10.5.5 Retail Leopard DVD.
Compatable with any boot 132 cd.
That is NOT A HACKED INSTALL DISK.
Why use OLD Retail DVD when YOU can UPDATE it VERY EASILY.
Which would you prefer???
Actually the Results are......
Both need a Retail and have the same Result...
I Incorporate dfe-132 into the dvd, don't see the sense in swapping the disks.
Update the Complete system to the latest.
By complete, I mean the Installer side as well as the Installed side.
Allow user packages.
And the winner is....The OSX86 Community!!!
