Well the thing is i have a asus p5q pro motherboard. couple years ago i did try to install mac osx on my pc but i just realised now i had to flash my my bios. ok now thing is all the tutorials are so bloody complicated. i read this http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=144020 and other tutorials. the thing is i dont understand why i have to download a retail version and a distro version. whats the purpose of that. if someone could also direct to a very simple explanation on how to install mac os using my motherboard i would really really really appreciate it. thank you

The hacked DVDs have a boot loader built-in, the retail DVD will only boot on a real Mac. That's why you need a boot CD for it.
