Hey. I want to try to install OSx Tiger on my old Acer TravelMate 4070, so my questions are:

Will it actually work? Will it run smooth?

If it will, do i need a heavily modded? and what version, like Hazard, iAtkos, iPC etc? What kext's, bootloaders should i use?

THanks :)

You don't want Tiger...it's obsolete by now and support is minimal. Believe it or not, you can run Snow Leopard; to install Snow Leopard, get a retail Snow Leopard DVD and follow the guide in my signature. :)

You're not going to get workstation speed, but I've found Snow Leopard to run at a reliable speed with 1GB and a P4. :)

1GB RAM is fine.

Generally, laptops are much harder to hack than desktops, the whole power management part is usually a pain, battery life, heat problems, wake/sleep when opening/closing the lid etc.

I've deleted your redundant quotes, please don't quote entire posts when replying directly below them, it's just garbage text to scroll past and it destroys readability.
