I would say "YES". using 10.4.11, using latest Chameleon loader.
Give it a shot, you haven't got much too loose, and may learn a few things as well.

@kdtt what graphics are you using? I got the system up and running as well except for a proper graphics driver. I got a NVIDIA GTS 250 but I am still kinda experimenting to get a dual boot with Tiger and Snow Leopard.

Update: Got the dual boot working, plus the proper graphics resolution under Tiger even though my card is not fully recognized. I installed a DSDT under Snow Leopard which may have done the trick for the resolution at least.

For me not even Snow Leopard works on Haswell processor laptop.. Even injecting correct FakeSMC... It boots, but I get the spinning beach ball of death... No proper graphics acceleration. I am guessing with Tiger will be the same... I tried injecting the modded ACPI tables and not injecting them, and result was the same.

I would really like to have a small partition for Snow Leopard and another one for Tiger along El Capitan, using Clover...
