Can I? Is it difficult?
so the rotten apple sitting on the top of my pc doesn't count towards bearing an Apple logo?
I have a Vmware machine with it on. Runs awful though.
i got 10.5 running natively on my laptop (external sb hdd) but only to see if i could as soon as you try and update it breaks and it diddnt like my wifi card
Yes to do the Vmware route you do need a good PC, an i5 seems to run it OK here, just need caffine installed to stop it going to sleep.
Well, just wrote a big post that vanished *peice of junk...grr*
Aim for intel over AMD.
Graphics card over onboard
Decent motherboard with good quality standard chips. None of this VIA rubbish.
Try to get it as vanilla as possible, that way minor updates shouldnt brick it.
Sata DVD drive over IDE.
Go on here and check the HCL, and any instructions, kexts, etc on your hardware OSx86
You'll want this http://code.google.com/p/osx86tools/ - allows you to easily add EFI strings (to get your gfx card working) and kexts (drivers).
I've had 10.5 on the Gigabyte P35-DS3R with a Geforce 8400 running perfectly. No problems whatsoever, and benchmarked at the same performance as an equivilent Powermac.

I think it depends on whether you use a patched kernel for your Hackintosh...
I think it's more a question of why you would want to really. Reminds me of a friend of mine who in his twenties used to delight in seeing what ridiculously overpowered engine he could cram into an unsuspecting second hand car. He went through loads of these designs, each one more challenging than the last, really just to see if it could be done. Of course, what he ended up with is a back yard full of lethal, temperamental, illegal and frankly unsellable monsters. I met him again recently. He drives a Volvo now.
