(6)Ok, it's all installed, and the computer should have rebooted itself. At boot time press any key to enter boot option menu, and type "-f -v -s". This will put you in single user mode.
thanks for your guide first!

So, I finished the installation, rebooted into Tiger, changed the kernel and extensions and repaired permissions, but when it starts I cannot run the patch because it hangs at boot time. It loads the extensions and when it changes the terminal resolution it reboots without an error code.
If Someone knows why it does that please tell me. I'm gonna try a couple of things now... Wish me luck!
BTW, if anyone needs the Extensions.kext that has medevil's nforce kext just ask.
EDIT: still getting the reboot problem, I'm gonna try the iATKOS_v1.0i_AMD_Test2.ppf later, they say it fixes this issues.

Also, for the previous poster. I think what I am going to do is just transfer the files over using linux and then repair the permissions following his directions. You could replace the files using something called MacDrive on windows. It will allow you to read and write to HFS.

Alright so I just tried it, but I keep getting this error that the root is a read-only file system and I can't copy or move any of the files to it. I tried doing the command under sudo also but I keep getting the same error. How did you copy the files and folder to your drive when you did it? I also tried to do it under linux, but I can't get permission to copy or change anything in linux. Any help would be much appreciated.

So I downloaded the Zephyroth 10.5.2 DVD from the newsgroups and burned it on a PC.
I tried several times to install using the GUID partition scheme but got the blinking cursor at reboot.
THen I re partitioned the drive as MBR and installed Zephyroth with nVinject, and nothing else but the MBR bootloader and I was able to boot right onto Leopard 10.5.2 .
Now here are the problems and what is working.
Networking worked right away no problems
My Video card works but will only allow 1024x768 resolution
Sound does NOT work.
Firefox freezes up if i leave the system siting for more than about 10 minutes with a browser window open and requires a hard reboot.
Software Update works fine, I updated QuickTime and iTunes with no problem at all.
So, If anyone has a working ALC850 kext so I can get sound sorted out and if someone can help me figure out the video issue, this will be a nice little Hackintosh.
System Specs are:
Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe
AMD Athlon X2 4800
EVGA 7900 GT-KO
2 Gig Crucial DDR Memory
(2) WD Raptor-X 150GB SATA drives
System is water cooled with CPU, GPU and Memory Water Blocks.
No Overclock at this time everything back to stock speeds for this test.

Team Scream, in the installation of Zephyroth 10.5.2 AMD you need to install AppleAC97Audio. I have the same Motherboard...with Sound!
Thank you Shealock, I will do that.
What about my video card tho?
It is an EVGA 7900-GT-KO
I am stuck on 1024x768 and I know this cant be right.
