OSx86 as a replacement OS/Toshiba Laptop

Greetings to all!


I have the following Laptop that I'm basically free to use as a testbed here:


Toshiba Tecra A3

Intel i915GM Onboard Graphics


40GB Hard Drive

Toshiba CDRW Burner

Intel Onboard IPW2200 Wireless

Some sort of Intel "Generic" Soundcard in the chipset

Marvell Yukon Gigabit Ethernet


I don't care about the Marvell card, I'd be fine with a PCMCIA ethernet card. Wireless isn't nessessary.


Basically, I want to blow the laptop away, install OS X **completly** to the drive, and run Mac Office 2004, Adobe CS (CS2 when I upgrade), and Macromedia Studio 8 for my work under Rosetta.


I'm not looking for blistering speed, this thing is only a Pentium M 1.6ghz, but I'd like to know- Are there any forseeable problems running the laptop with OS x86 (SSE2 patches), and Rosetta?


I'm just trying to figure out if I'm wasting my time, and if I might brick my Laptop and cost myself a days worth of work to repair the thing.
