    Well....I finally found a distribution of Leopard that doesn't crap out on me. iDeneb. Anyway, I can't get it to install, because I get a "Still Waiting For Root Device" message...and it goes on and on and on.

    I'll be glad to supply someone with more info, if needed.

    How would I find the number of my partition number that would have OS X in it?

    With OS X or with Windows? With OS X, use fdisk in Terminal. With Windows, use DiskPart in Command Line. When you type fdisk, it'll say somewhere: 'disk' is in the form of ... That is the disk that you'll be working with. For example, for me, its: fdisk /dev/rdisk0

    not sure..

    but you really need to upgrade your graphics card, other than that your specs aren't bad. You can get an ATI HD 4830 for $80 and that will boost graphics performance an incredible amount.

    What do I type in the Windows Command Line after DiskPart?

    There are various commands: list | select | flag.

    What is it you are trying to do? Those are the commands you'll need.

    Like I mentioned earlier, I would like to find out the number of the partition that Mac OS X will go on.

    List Disk
    Select Disk [X]
    List Partition

    Should be somewhere around those lines.

    Nothing works. I tried every one of the commands (Seen on the Wiki link) while booting iDeneb, and they didn't work.
