Only a retail DVD install is allowed to be discussed here - and other sources for the OS are piracy.

I have not studied the 1018 threads but OS X may not support your WLAN card. I bought a USB wireless adapter to use with my Mini 9 (which has a Mac-unsupported Intel card). There are many threads on sound issues.

10.6.3 is what is generally available now. Read the other 1018 threads for tips.
