I was not able to monitor my cpu temperature with any software that are available (can't not recognize any sensor). Any of you guys able to monitor your cpu temp?

Kenny, your sig says you're running iAtkos 4i updated to 10.5.6 on your laptop. What method did you use to get to 10.5.6, and are you having the issues that Zeroburn had?

Zeroburn, I'll get the logo sized way up for you today. :)

I downloaded the combo-update, and let it run to go from 10.5.4 to 10.5.5, and the same with 10.5.6. I am fully working (except the regular stuff) I did not have to do anything extra.

That would be cool Kenny. I hopefully I can get a 10.5.4 DVD around. This is with using that Bootloader method? And would allow for direct Apple Kernel Updates?

I'm interested in plain OS X only installs, as well as multi-boot with either XP or Vista (whichever you perfer). Maybe once I get time I will help work on multi-boot methods for other OSes, hopefully more here will also help out.

OK there are 2 ways we can go. I like the method using the EFI Partition and placing all the boot stuff there. But if you are going to dual boot with anything on an NTFS partition, we'll go another way.

Start working on getting a 10.5.4 Retail DVD, and I'll put a guide up in the next day or so.

BTW, if you go XP and OS X, we can do a smoother boot menu setup. I think with VISTA, we will have to use both bootloaders....but not sure.

Do any of you guys want me to do a retail vanilla install and post the instructions? If so, I'll do it the first of the week. The only part of the vanilla install that has to be touched is adding audio, and ps2 trackpad support. I also need to know if you want duel booting, and if so what other OS, xp is easy, Vista is more work. Let me know.
BTW, retail install has the same issues (audio jacks, mic, fan after sleep) Also, for a retail install, you must start with a 10.5.4 DVD, the 10.5.1 DVD will not work with our graphics.

In Topic: TV Cards USB/PCI any drivers for these?

I have this one. The same hardware comes with eyetv for about $30.00 more. Works great in OSx and Win.

In Topic: Problem with video

I could be wrong, but it sounds to me like the video is not loading the correct driver....try booting with -x at the Darwin prompt. If you don't see the prompt, press f8 during the boot countdown.
That may get you started, if not, sorry.
Good luck
