    No. Please search. Just get a Mac Mini. Apple believes it to be illegal, and if their copyright suit goes through, it will be.

    In the legal way? Answer is no. You have to buy a Mac with OSX.

    illegal for psystar to sell a modified osx to run on pc's yes as they are going after trademark issues and copyright infringement.

    however, there are ways to boot osx on a pc USING a retail leopard dvd and is not illegal. violation of eula, maybe but not illegal

    True, really. You MUST buy a retail copy of Leopard if you are to put one of the hacked versions on your PC, though. Otherwise we'll frown on you. With severe frownyness.

    leo4all is the best osx86 release for AMD, your processor is really old though so you need to know if it has SSE2 or SSE3. Boot-132 allows people with Intel to use an unmodified retail disc for installation, but it doesnt work with AMD.

    You would be better off with a new core 2 duo PC if you want to attempt installing Leopard on it.
