Well it has been done......
Got my 500gb Western Digital Scorpio Blue in there and seems
fine and got my msiwind install updated to 10.5.6 using Mysticus C*s patches.
I now have working brightness shortcut keys, speaker / headphone audio switching
and battery indicator , as well as a trackpad preference pane using the Mysticus C*
10.5.6 update package as well as his trackpadfull package
The machine working from battery now boots into osx with lower brightness
and does show about 6hrs on the battery meter from boot-up with a fully charged
battery ...... time will tell if this is accurate.
All in all apart from some sleep , audio and wired lan problems, the machine now
works like a real mac, including doing time machine backups.
Xbench shows a score of about 45-46 with all tests enabled which i cant really
compare against anything.
I did previously swap the memory for a 2gb stick as well as swapping the wireless
for a dell 1390 card and all is working as smooth as can be.
The only problem I encountered was during setting up the 500gb hdd which I installed
with msiwindosx and then with my original 160gb connected via usb did the transfer
my information from another mac, which halted for about an hour while transferring
In the end i did a hard reboot and all my files , folders , applications , user profile
etc are working fine. Done my Apple updates and it says i am completely up to date.
All in all a very happy bunny.
I now have my dual boot osx / xp machine.... now if i could only get parallels or
vmware running with this config I would love it.
My config is as follows :
100gb Primary Mac OSX extended journalled partition
100gb Primary Windows NTFS partition
244gb Logical N.TFS drive (Media)
26gb Logical FAT32 drive (SHARE)
All made with MBR scheme.
If anyone knows how i could do either the parallels or vmware thing with this
config then please let me know.

You mention having speaker/headphone-jack switching working, but also mention ongoing sound problems - specifically, what are these?How did you get sound through the headphone jack working?

I used audieee and appleazalia audio which i thought everyonewas using.Also the setup of the machine was easy used the msiwindosx.isoand then used mysticus c upgrade package.Ie I upgraded to 10.5.6 and without rebooting installedMysticus C* 10.5.6 update package then rebooted.I then also had working headphone speaker switching withno sound on the headphones.So i deleted the applehda.kext and installed appleazaliaaudio.kextalong with chud and tried about a dozen or so different versionsof audieee until i found one that worked.Sorry I can't be more specific but i cant remember which threadI got it from.
