Install Leopard on vaio vgn-nw21ef

Hi everybody!

First of all, congratulations for your forum and what you do, it's really great! :(


I have a couple of questions for you:

I'd like to install Leopard on my vaio vgn-nw21ef. I've tried following some installation guides found out there (iAtkos, iDeneb, ..), but with no results.


I'll list my hardware:

Motherboard chipset: Mobile Intel GM45 Express

Processor: Pentium Dual-Core CPU T4300 @ 2.10GHz

VGA: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570

Audio card: ATI R700 [Radeon HD 4000 Series]

Wireless card: Atheros AR928X Wireless Network Adapter


Now, my questions are:

1) which kind of osX86 installation do you reccomend me? I mean, iAtkos, Kalyway, etc...

2) is it possible to install leopard onto an extended partition? i could resize a primary partition, but if it is possible i'd like to avoid it..

3) Having done the questions above (leopard installation onto a extended partition), is it possible to install Snow Leopard? Are there lots of differences?


And, if possible, i'd like to get some links with working guides for the reccomend "distribution".


I'm sorry if these questions have already been answered, but i'm spending much time trying to get my osX86 without results!!


Thank you!
