Hi, let me give you a report on this.
1. Both DD(0.4patch) and DVD install method were tried on Dell 700M and ASUS M5N Notebook
2. I strongly recommended using the DVD install method. Coz your OSX is unbelievabely stable..damn stable..MSN7 never hang, use OSX version of FireFox(Not the intel one), try Macromedia Studio, Opera...all damn stable
Adv of DVD install:
1. Damn Stable!!!!
2. Easier to install
3. customize for your needs(partition)

I strongly believe that I know what I were doing when using DU during DVD install. I just want to format a freespace to MAC HFS Format...once I clicked the partition button, demn! after 2 seconds, it said it lost the connection to my hard disk. Finally all partition lost in my HD, leaving a god demn free space with size same as your HD!
I repeat, I know what I were doing was right, it;s the DU itself tell me it come across error suddnely(Lost connection to HD), thereby I guess the partition table was corrupted. Anyway, I just install it using the entire drive then(no other option right? DAMN) and I got success.
Last TIPS for MSN 5 to install: Once you click the funish button, the spin wheel pointer appears for around 2 - 5 minutes, then the installation finally funish successfully. That's it.
Sound is work: Follow the instruction on Page 8 from the TOPIC about <First Generic DVD install> above.
!!!!!!!!!!!!! Above is my own experience, it may appear totally DIFFERENT to your machine, so take your OWN RISK !!!!!!!!
PS: Could somebody explain to me that why this DVD install is so stable, compare to the DD with 0.4 Patch?
