that doesnt tell me how to install snow on a laptop
Yeah, but you could ask there, as those places are Hackintosh specific, and since you want to create a Hackintosh with unsupported hardware (Celeron???), what better place to ask, where such things are done? Or haven't you paid any attention?

Those sites that Sim linked too have guides and forums to help instruct people to load OSX on non apple hardware. My recommendation is to visit the sites and determine if your machine is compatible to actually run OSX. Many PCs running windows are not and no amount of hacking will get it to run (no reasonable amount of hacking).

You may unfortunately be stuck with a CPU/system that simply won't work with OSx. OSx is not guaranteed to work on any non-apple hardware anyway. Finding the tips and details is an arcane art and that's why there are whole forums dedicated to trying (emphasize trying) to get osx to run on non-apple hardware. sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't, and we don't have time here to get into it

I have successfully installed Leopard 10.5 on it before just seems like 10.6 wont work and there dont seem to be any hope in a OSx86 Lion
