Nice installation guide my friend! Now I have a couple of question...
The first one is about step number 1.

"1. When Booting during installation off DVD do "F8 (-v -f)"

My question is: (and is very stupid).. This is during the boot from dvd? or after installation in the first boot from HDD?

My problem is that no matter the Distro I use I always end up getting a black screen at the first boot form the HDD right after the kexts are loaded, Did this happened to you? Is there a way arround?

I can't even boot in safe mode... I tried the graphics mode to 1024*768 but there's no luck, I get the apple logo in the gray screen and then it freezes...

Did you use IDE HDD's or SATA HDD's? and the DVD/w?
