Need advice on installing Snow Leopard on eVGA X58 LE

I had osx installed on my pentium d 920 some time ago but forsake it for my x58 system with win 7 64bit.


After reading some of the stickies and tutorials I think I'm ready to embark on the osx quest I once took.


System Specs

intel i7 920 @stock
Team Extreem 3x2gb 1600 rams
4850 xf
1x WD black (640gb), 2x WD green (1tb+2tb)


After reading I decided to go with this GUIDE ([url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] + [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] by tonymacx86)


I also plan on dual booting Win 7 and SL.


But I have some questions I need to ask (remembered I had lots of troubles with my previous OSX adventure).


1. The guide is based on a totally new install of both OS but I currently already have a Win 7 installation, what do I need to do different?


2. My previous experience with OSX taught me not to install it with Win 7 on the same disk, so I'm planning to dual boot with each OS on its own disk which differs from the this GUIDE. (Dual boot by tonymacx86) What do I need to do different? Will Chameleon be affected in anyway if I choose to dual boot on separate disk instead of separate partitions?


3. In my previous OSX experiment I used to have a copy of a OSX installation on another partition which didn't have a bootloader for testing OSX updates so I wouldn't ruin my main OSX installation, is there a new way of doing this?


4. Lastly is [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] + [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] + retail leopard the best way to go or are there better options for my setup above?


5. I use to have a stack of OSX notes with commands and tips and tricks for installation troubleshooting and stuff, anyone kind enough to point me to a link? Need to refresh myself with OSX stuff, been a long time.


Thx in advance!
