and thats it. to tidy up your graphics and everything, you will probably have to type

-x

at the chameleon screen to install in safe mode but once you get into OSX, use ##### to install the kexts/drivers etc, also make sure that you replace your kernel with the 10.3.1 Vanilla Kernel from ##### Supported, follow this procedure.
  • Download ##### Supported
  • Unzip and mount #####-Suppported.iso
  • Navigate to /Extra/Preboot.dmg
  • Mount Preboot dmg
  • Navigate to /Extra/mach_kernel
  • Drag mach_kernel to desktop.
  • Download and run ShowAllFiles to reveal hidden files in the Finder.
  • Navigate to your Snow Leopard hard drive.
  • Delete the existing mach_kernel
  • Drag mach_kernel from desktop to your Snow Leopard hard drive.
  • Reboot.
Congratulations- now you're running the Vanilla kernel! TADA ;)

welcome to your new mac :)
