I would suggest that you read right through and then re-read to make sure you understand each step and/or download/print for future reference
Please read the EDITS before posting a question.
What you need for install
1- Access to a MAC or Hack (Running 10.0-10.6 doesn't matter which)
2- Mac OS X Install DVD
3- 8GB or larger External USB Drive or Flash Drive
4- myHack installer found here http://osx86.sojugar...r-1-1-released/
UPDATE- Updated myHack for the 10.6.4 Legacy Kernel http://blog.nawcom.com/?p=242
5-Carbon Copy Cloner (free) found here http://www.bombich.com/
6-One Kext each for Audio, Lan & Video Note for video with 10.6.3-4 you only need one kext for video but
if you are installing form an earlier DVD or image you will need to upgrade to at least 10.6.3, if not a DSDT
or GFX Strings will be needed (kexts posted below)
7-Common sense & patience.
This method differs from the method on the myhack site as I found this simpler. I will call the Mac or Hack used to do this "Donor" the USB drive "Install"
INSTALLATION -- Attach USB drive to "Donor" computer. Open Disk Utility and partition the USB drive. Use one partition Mac OS extended journaled and under options pick GUID partition table.
Insert Mac OS X Install DVD. DO NOT click on the install Mac OS X when it pops up.
In the Finder Go Menu- Go to folder-type /Volumes/Mac OS X Install DVD/System/Installation/Packages..Open 'OSInstall.mpkg NOT OSInstall.pkg or the upgrade.pkg ..MAKE SURE that the destination chosen is the external drive "Install" Under the custom tab, uncheck printer drivers, languages, fonts etc, if you need any of these, they can be installed later. When the install is finished, close the installer.
Note: If you get an installation failed message after install it is safe to ignore it, this is a common but inconsistent error. It happens when the installer can not “bless” the targeted partition and it believes your system will not be bootable.
Next (still on 'Donor" computer open the myHack.mpkg. It is most IMPORTANT that you change install location to the USB drive "Install"
Check the following options..com.apple.Boot.plist......Graphics Enabler....Chocolate Kernel......evOverboot.kext......IOATAFamily.kext....
Close myhack installer when finished.

Eject and unplug "Install" from "Donor"
TRANSFER TO OPTIPLEX -- Plug in USB "Install" to your Dell Optiplex. Boot dell and enter Bios (tap F2 key while starting) Under Drives/Sata operation choose Combination, save and exit bios now Tap F12 to enter boot options, choose USB device. When you see the Chameleon Boot loader screen tap the space bar and type -v If the boot hangs this will help. Be patient the first boot always take time.
You should get to the OS X setup screen, you will not have sound or ethernet or accelerated graphics yet, will fix that later.
TRANSFER from "Install" to Dell Optiplex Hard Drive-- You should now be booted into OS X on the Dell from the USB Drive. Open Disk Utility and partition the Dell Internal Drive. If you want to dual boot with Windows Later have two partitions on Mac os extended and one NTFS (or DOS) or you may want to have a partition for your OS X backup, or three partitions MAC-Windows-Backup. or just one partition. For simplicity now name your os x partition "MAC" Whatever you choose go ahead and do it.
When you have finished partitioning open CCC, set source to"Install", destination to "MAC" settings to copy all and erase destination unchecked. Go ahead and clone.
When cloning is finished run myhack again with the same settings, destination "MAC" .. or simpler run the Chameleon installer if you downloaded it earlier again select destination "MAC". Either method will do the same, that is, install the boot loader to the internal drive.
Now restart and boot from "MAC"
EDIT For Onboard Network problems. With some routers a "mac address has to be set. Thanks to Weazlmon for this solution
Open a terminal window and type (not sure if you need to sudo -s first):
sudo nano rc.local
edit the end of the file with:
ifconfig en0 ether xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
where you replace the xx's with your actual MAC address
press ctrl-x, and select y to save it.
OK Video, Audio & Lan--- Move the kexts & kext utility to desktop, Unzip them all. Drag audio, ethernet & framebuffer kexts onto kext utility icon and it will install them and rebuild caches and permissions automatically. when it is finished reboot and all will be working.

If you upgrade "Chameleon" at any time you must replace the "Boot" file again. I suggest you leave the "Legacy Kernel" in place so that you can boot "legacy_kernel" at the boot prompt in case of problems.
