Desperate for Install Guide (ASUS P5B-E)

At this point I am desperate for an install guide specifically for my motherboard with Vista installed first and dual booting kalyway and Vista.

I am on my 7th install and this is just not working. Please review my hardware specs.

I think my main issue is configuring my harddrives and dual booting. I have never had a successful osx86 boot without the DVD. I have had one successful install, but that was without selecting a boot loader from the Kalyway customization button.

I would really appreciate if someone would let me know:


1. How to prepare my harddrives from Vista.

2. How to Install the OSX86 boot loader (using Kalyway)

3. Which options to choose in custom install.

4. How to not get invalid checksum when I try to install any DMG.

5. How to not get "could not validate pacckage message when I am installing any .pkg.

6. How to configure the Vista, OSX86 dual boot with 2 HDDs and 3 partitions (2 partitions on my first harddrive with the second partition being for OSX and one partition on my second hardrive which is used for music)


I know this is much to ask, but I have nowhere else to turn for this kind of information.

Thanks in advance for all the help.


Note: I have searched the forums many times and have tried other guides.
