I am trying to build an OS-X system on my Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3R motherboard which has an ATI HD3870-x2 graphics card

I am running OpenBSD, Ubuntu, Windows Vist and Windows 7 systems. I do not have access to a MAC system.

Can anyone out there supply instructions on how to build a customized BootCD-123 on a non-MAC system?

Main problem ist the gpu ATI 3870 which has major problems / impossilble at least to get Snow Leopard running.
You should only try 10.5.x !

So im basically computer retarded, I cant figure out from the instructions how to run the root command. Putting the extensions in is simple but then the steps after are

Then run the slimbuild script as root:

cd /dir/to/slimbuild
sudo ./slimbuild.sh

I do not get where I put this in or activate the command at all so my iso can be created.

Trying this out for the first time and the script fails even if I don't include any extensions at all... Anything I am missing?

[codebox]roach$ sudo ./slimbuild2.sh
