Problems installing on Dell Dimension 8400

Hello all! Hopefully you can help me. I am new to this, I have never had a mac and this is my first time installing OSx86.


I followed this guide: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=175359


I have the same hardware setup except I have an nVidia GeForce 6400 graphics card. The installation ran smoothly and I got the heralded green checkmark but when I try to boot I run into some problems.


The first time I booted I used the -v -f commands and it kept getting hung up on the message:


osx86 AppleBCM5751Ethernet: 1 1659 setPowerLevels - returning early, have a 5721. onoff=, fpcidevice=


So... Assuming this has something to do with the ethernet card I just decided I'd reinstall without it and worry about that post-install. I erased the partition and did another install with only the kernel and chipset drivers. This time it gets hung up at:


NTFS volume name , version 3.1.


This is my first time installing OSX on anything and any help would be much appreciated!!!
