I'm preparing to install OS X Lion whenever it comes out.
I recently learned a method to burn a bootable install disc for OS X Lion.

I figured it would not be wise to use a bootCD (like ModCD 0.3.1) and swap it with OS X Lion install DVD because there might be problems like FakeSMC etc.. most likely causing KP, right?

How would I install OS X Lion from a bootable install disc?

Do I just simply replace kexts in nawcom's ModCD 0.3.1?
And if so, what exactly do I need to replace. (I've got a perfectly working DSDT and only need rtl8139 kext)

Thank you in advance.

There are several posts here already about installing Lion on a from a USB or DVD drive. This one seems to work for most (and is generic enough that it should support your computer provided you know what additional kexts you may need). Lion Install

Also, there is at least one variant of the USB method that uses hard drive partitions (currently, it requires a working Snow Leopard) - like the USB method on which it's based, it's relatively painfree (and unlike the USB method, it should work for any Intel CPU based on Conroe or newer, including Celeron DC and Pentium DC with VT-x support).

So far, I'm pretty darn impressed with Apple's newest *cat*.
