Apple hasnt made any drivers for it, you are going to have to wait either for 10.5.6 or 10.6.0, deal with it

What would happen if the drivers were not available and i was to install/boot into OSx86 anyways? Would there simply be reduced resolution options in the mean time or would it not work at all? Sorry, I'm not sure if OSx86 imposes some sort of generic VGA driver if you have not installed drivers for your video card.

 

Worst case scenario I could switch to the onboard video on my Shuttle SG31G2 if I get dual booting to work, as I'm told that the SG31G2 works quite well in OSx86 using onboard video/sound.

As with any unix like operating system there are VESA video drivers. If you've used Linux or any other unix like operating system before though you'll know that these suck.

 

You'd be better off using your onboard video for now until the official 10.5.6 comes out with proper drivers.
