Using MechDrew's guide on my Vostro A90 (A04 BIOS). 8GB SSD
I was able to get OSX 10.5.2 installed from a retail DVD imaged to an external hard drive. At this point, everything worked. Then I used monolingual to remove enough junk to free up space for the 10.5.8 combo update. The update process ran fine, however I had to use the tip at the end to change the boot plist from mach_kernel.10.5.6 to mach_kernel to get into safe mode. Once there NetBook installer crashes when I hit go, no matter what boxes are checked.
Any help is appreciated!

thanks for the move, didn't see the OSX section at first.
