Update based on a few questions I received. Two things are not working on my install 1. The microphone input 2. CD/DVD burning. However. everything else works and here are more details:

 

-I did enable AHCI in the bios (it was already enabled by default I think) this is mandatory!!

-Lan is enabled and working with Realtek R1000 option (enabled in the installer)

-firewire is enabled but I haven't tested it.

-Voodoo 9.7 kernel

-USB Mouse and Keyboard are working fine.

-Partitioned the drive GPT in two mac partitions case sensitive and journaled. If you want linux to read and write the drives then do not turn journaling on.

-Originally I tried creating a DOS partition and then running a Ubuntu installer to change it to Linux and then install Ubuntu. However, it made my mac partition non-bootable and I had to redo the install.

 

No other options were changed in the install besides the ones I mentioned already. i will have to try another sound driver to see if I can get my Microphone working.

FYI, just had a question about the SATA ports used. I am using the two GSATA2 ports (dark colored/purple) and not the orange SATA2 ports (there are six of these).

Also, just did an update to 10.5.8 via Software Update (built in apple update). Everything is still fine except for microphone and CD/DVD burning. Sometimes I get funny noise in the sound but a reboot solves that.

 

I have not updated the Airport software due to issues with the wireless controller.

One more thing. You cannot do debugging of iPhone code in XCode with this setup due to issues with the Voodoo Kernel. Major Bummer!
