Hi there!
I just recently bought a dell mini 9 netbook because it was cheap and i figured it would be a good way to experiment with OSX.
However, it only has an 8gb ssd.
I guess i'm a noob because after trying the usb method i gave up and ordered an external dvd drive to install a hackintosh distro from cd.
I successfully installed ideneb lite but did not know what drivers to pick in custom install so when install was complete OSX said no keyboard and i don't have a usb keyboard!

Is there an easier way to do this or is there a better distro for my mini 9 that would work on a 8gb ssd.
The 8 gigs is not permanent but I want to mess with mac first before dropping the cash to upgrade it.
Currently running tiny windows 7 and it only takes up 3gb and is pretty darn good!
about to install moblin v2 to see what thats like!

Any help with the OSX question is greatly appreciated!!!!
Thanks for reading!

well i've got a solution for keyboard and mouse but since I don't know your hadrdware configuration that's about all I can do!
Mouse and keyboard fix: in the customized installer select under drivers. voodoo ps/2 driver with trackpad plugin. this should fix the keyboard problem
