i need some help with choosing right distro and right choices during installation.
So those are my specs:

Which bootloader? Chimera or Chameleon 1.4.1 r877 or???
Processor: Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor T6670 (2.20 GHz, 2 MB L2 cache, 800 MHz FSB) - Which kernel? Vanilla (64-bit mach_kernel and extensions)? Or native? Or?

Chipset: Mobile Intel® PM45 Express Chipset ICH9M-Enhanced - Works with 10.7.2 -

Graphics: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4330 (discrete) - IMPORTANT - I don't know how to make it work!?

Wireless: Broadcom 4322AGN 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi Adapter - IMPORTANT -
Found this on network ("

for the wifi i flash the whitelist from the bios and i change the intel 5100 wifi card to artheros card and airport is good") so, how do I do that?


maybe AirPort2.kext?

Audio: High Definition Audio, Integrated stereo speakers, Stereo headphone/line out, Stereo microphone in, integrated dual-microphone array - it's not a priotity - VoodooHDA maybe?

Ethernet: Marvell Ethernet (10/100/1000 NIC) - It's important if WLAN won't work.

Trackpad: Synaptics PS/2 Port TouchPad - I think it has native support :)

Battery: Isn't, important! I don't use it anyway, but do I need to use something for power?? :)

Please help me! I will make a donation to OSx86 if I succeed installing it on my laptop :)
