First go into the BIOS and change the hard drive to ATA
I partitioned the drive into two equal partitions, during the Windows 7 installation, then I installed Windows 7 on one of the partitions, using the basic settings. Once Windows 7 came up, I went into disk manager, formatted the remainind disk space NTFS, and marked it as active. Then I rebooted to the OSX86 installation media.
I rebooted to the iPC DVD with no boot switches, and it came up into the installer screen just fine.
I opened Disk Utility and erased the partition I created in Windows, and reformatted it as Extended Journaled, I also named it OSX.
I closed disk utility and ran through the install, then chose Customize, after selecting my hard drive.
I used the following settings in the Customize Install screen
Choose the following Options:
iPC OSx86 10.5.6 Base System
iPC OSx86 10.5.6 Intel AMD SSE2 SSE3

installed every option, except Marvin's AMD Utility
Everything finished and I rebooted, I had to power off the PC myself once it went to a black screen, as it did not reboot itself.
After a reboot, I had to plug in an external keyboard and mouse, but as soon as I installed the kexts I've included, (attached as M6300kexts.zip) they were working.
Installed all of the following with Kext Helpber b7, found in the Applications folder
Keyboard and Touchpad:
Sound: (deleted the current AppleHDA.kext first)
I now have 10.5.6 installed with the following working:
Keyboard and Trackpad
Power, including Sleep, Close Display Sleep, (shutdown, and restart still not working, I'm guessing it's an NVidia issue)
Sound, including autoswitch to headphones, volume and mute work on front of laptop (cd controls on the front panel do not work)
USB support (tried external mouse, external hard drive and flash drive)
Broadband WIFI with my ATT Sierra Wireless Card

After everything was installed in OSX86 as I liked, I went back to boot into Windows 7, to my suprise, it booted just fine, without any additional changes.
If anyone has any suggestions for the shutdown and restart, please post them up. Also, today I'll be swapping the Intel 4965 for a Dell 1301 Wifi card, which should get the airport working.
