Since you are already in the studying mode with exams and everything, I would suggest first going to the Tiger side and examining some of the very excellent tutorials over there on setting up osx. Also, look through the wiki to see how compatible your system might be with osx86. I definitely wouldn't experiment with this if I didn't have an external drive, or a separate laptop drive to swap in while I was learning. At the very least you want to be sure you have a dependable backup of all your present systems and data. Reading the tiger forum and doing some basic experimenting with some of the install disks that are out there will help you to zero in on some more precise questions. Using your own id as an example, presently you are asking 'solar system' questions when with a little work on the Tiger side, you could be asking 'Chandigarh' questions. Good luck.
