For anyone that is interested.

I already had snow leopard working on my rig. (see signature) using the OSX86 Tutorial/guide seen on youtube. Added dsdt.aml and EFI string to get the graphics card working

I thought it might be a good idea to see if it would work with the built in 950gma graphics card.

it appears to be working ok with the exception of any resolution change. I managed to get a maximum of 1600x1200 by editing the com.apple.Boot.plist file

I've managed to get it fully working by using the patched DSDT method like in Leopard. However, it only works in 32 bit mode.
