Will there be any problems or will it work fine.

My graphic card is an agp ati hd radeon 3850

 

Is there any tutorial which i could follow and i also have ubuntu and windows running as a parallel installation will this installation corrupt anything and i cant boot anymore?.

Thx for the help!

What is your motherboard? This is the most important. But there's a very good chance you can get it working

Neither. Get yourself iPC 10.5.6, or iDeneb, or XxX, or iAtkos.

Go to the tutorials section. It'll shouldn't mess up anything if you do it right.

A google search for PV488 brings up a lot of links to ASRock, so I would guess that is the manufacturer of your motherboard. If you have a Linux LiveCD (the Xubuntu LiveCD will fit on a CD-RW btw, or the System Restore CD is even smaller), you could boot an run lspci -vv and lsusb -vv. That would give you a good idea of what hardware is on your system.

 

Your CPU probably has SSE3 since it has hyperthreading, but I'm not sure. cpuz will tell you that too. It definitely has SSE2, but SSE3 is the one you really want. SSE2 is just bare minimum to run.
