* Drivers = MOST IMPORTANT. sata-ide, sound (weak so almost not worth it) NO graphics or nv drivers installed. ABSOLUTELY no network from the disk... dont select anything else. or

* My net card and video both loaded native. I do recommend highly, turn off onboard sound and network before installing. if you want to try after install, turn them back on one at a time. nic seems to lose its connect settings and smeggs. sound is weak but sound from 4 rear channels
 
* Network= Dlink 10-100 pci. -works. not overly fast though

* Network2 = on-board Realtek RTL8111B - Works. install Realtek RTL81xx-0_0_90.pkg very nice work from Lnx2Mac. thanks to him.

* Network2 = on-board Realtek RTL8111B - fails - probably a proper realtek 10-100-1000 kext would take care of it. loads wrong settings but is recognized
 
* Sound = onboard ALC888 -works, not overly loud. seeking new kext or may wait til i try combo update to 10 6 8

* Graphics = NV6200tc pcie - works (native from install w no extra enablers or injectors) pretty fair. some minor glitches but a patch should fix it.

* My net card and video both loaded native. I do recommend highly, turn off onboard sound and network in the BIOS before installing. if you want to try after install, turn them back on one at a time. nic seems to lose its connect settings and smeggs. sound is weak but sound from 4 rear channels
 
 
* Install Notes= installed with ide- ide config. will install with bios SATA set to ide or ahci. the largest issue is a wrong driver will hang you out to dry for another 1+hour installation, and no.. dont load a driver off your old 10 5 6 dvd. toasted and reinstall from scratch. For those who have the "Still Waiting for Root Device" issue. this is it. turn off and remove what you dont need and dont load ANYTHING from the dvd that wont match exactly and is known to work. ie... dont install any drivers if you dont have to. I took alot of notes and this is pretty much where I arrived after several installs and attempted installs. AMD-VIA is a can do, 10 5 6 worked better, but is hard to get software for.
