First make a list of all hardware used (as you did). Then find the chipsets used to provide the functionality, for instance audio, network, etc. Download a hacked distribution (iDeneb, XxX, Kalyway, etc.). Select the appropirate chipset drivers for your system and you sould be good to go.

Remember that updating with apple software update will break your system if you use these install disks. For a proper updateable system use the Chameleon boot method. Start with the install disks so you can find yourself the correct drivers and a stable system.
