    Yes, it is possible. It's called the X86 project. However this is in violation of Mac OS X's EULA, and is illigal.

    There IS no different hardware.

    On a PC, yes, you can install OS X alone; on Windows, only Leopard Server is "possible".

    No, that's the chip architecture for all chips.

    The OSX86 project is the Hackintosh community.

    Yes.

    No. Not at all. Purchase a retail copy of Leopard and then do what you will with a Hackintosh.

    As in buy Leopard and then download the modded OSX86?

    Haha most people don't bother buying leopard when they find out they can find one online for free that works with their PC, that's what I ment ;)

    Yep, that's what I mean, and I know exactly what you're saying, unfortunately. :(
