Hardware:

Intel Pentium 4 1.6 CPU (SSE2)

Intel D845HV

384MB RAM

ATI 8500LE 128MB

3Com 3C905CX-TXM

 

Used the generic install DVD to install image to hard drive. Installation would not begin - long story short - SAM errors indicated that the image did not like my DVD ROM. After swapping DVD ROMs, installation finished in a matter of 15 minutes.

 

After this I then installed a copy of SuSe 9.3 with Grub as the boot loader. Both partitions play nice with each other.

 

Did not need to remove ATI kext files, 3D acceleration was working well...I had tested magnification on the dock and it worked nice (I could even play chess). I needed to install the AC97 kext file (it was missing). iTunes worked after this change.

 

Updated to 10.4.3 with new update image. System now responds even faster!!

 

Installed Adium, Chicken on the VNC, and SNES9x - all work well.
