It is possible to run Mac OS X Leopard 10.5 on any PowerMac that has been upgraded with sufficient memory and a G4-Processor Upgrade.

This includes:
PowerMac 8600
PowerMac 9500
PowerMac 9600
PowerMac (Tower/Desktop/AIO) Beige G3
PowerMac Yikes! G4

This work builds on from where Xpostfacto left off.

This hack is in addition to the well-document trick of getting Mac OS X 10.5 installed on any G4 which is not supported by apple. This can be read at: http://lowendmac.com/osx/leopard/open...
