Well, I installed Tiger 10.4.1 from "tiger-x86.tar.bz2" on a partition of my hard disk. I set dual boot with "chain0" file.
Start up my PC, I can choise Win or Mac, but when I choise "Mac x86" Darwin load for few seconds and then my PC is reboot. Why??!? Help!!!

Maybe your computer doesn't have SSE2?
thats the minimum for osx86

Darwin bootloader has some problems with extended partitions ;)

choose "Mac x86" , press Enter and then quickly F8. select your mac partition and press Enter again.
