The error was when i boot with the DVD (both 10.5.2 & 10.5.1) , justed hanged up on the gray apple screen with a "stop signal"

it should install, or so does the wiki say - iatkos should do fine.

You need to boot the dvd with -v (verbose) to see where it hangs, post that back on the thread. The stop sign most probable means it cannot recognize a drive.

Second, have you tried installing from a sata dvd drive ? (that might help)

Third, kallyway 10.5.2 has the power to integrate a specific driver in the install dvd, if you can just find which ..
