NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS

Do you need more information? I'm not really experienced with that matter. The thing is that I wanna use all 4 GB RAM which VISTA 32 bit wouldn't do. I heard Leopard does.

Thanks for your help!
google osx86, go to the macinsane or w/e, then click the box on the right

1-no sound
2-mouse-pad scrolling and tapping don't work (because they have a different system on mac books with using more than one finger and everything ...)
3-my network card and wireless don't work
4-it has a problem with usb devices and sometimes doesn't recognize them
5-it hasn't recognized the graphics card model and thinks that it only has 32MB ram.

There might be more problems but i just installed today so i haven't explored everything yet, and I haven't had the chance to see if the mentioned problems are fixable yet.
you have to install proper kexts for anything to work correctly, sounds is one of the hardest to get working completely.
there are ways to get tap and scroll on touchpads but is also hard
theres kext's for most network and wireless's
theres patches for usb
you have to install proper kext for video
