DO NOT UPGRADE TO 10.6.2. WITH THAT UPDATE APPLE WILL END SUPPORT FOR ATOM PROCESSORS. There are hacked versions of the update, but I have not done that yet, so just google for info on that, I will NOT help you with updating to 10.6.2.

This is my ASUS 1005HA EEE PC, running Mac OSX 10.6.1

iDeneb 1.3 DVD
Netbook Installer 0.8.2
This file pack:
USB Optical DVD drive (there are ways to do it without DVD drive, but I don't know how)
External Hard Drive
Copy of Snow Leopard 10.6
EEE PC 1005HA or 1008HA (other models might work too)

Boot iDeneb, and open up Disk Utility, and partition your external drive (or a partition of your external drive) and install iDeneb 1.3 to the external hard drive. Under "Customize" select (under chipset) "ICHX fixed" (under fixes) ACPI Fix, CPUs 1, FireWire remove, Power Off, and Power Management, (under video, intel), select GMA950.
After install, allow the computer to restart, and make sure you open up the boot selection menu from the BIOS, and boot into the external hard drive. The next step is to avoid the "Registration loop". Chameleon bootloader will show up, and press F8 to enter options. Make sure the Mac partition is highlighted, and type "-s" and then hit enter.

You'll see all the drivers load, and then eventually there will be a command line for you to type in. Type "/sbin/mount -uw /" and hit enter. Then type "touch /var/db/.AppleSetupDone" and hit enter. Then type "passwd root" and hit enter. Type in what you want your main password to be, hit enter, type it again, hit enter, and then type "reboot" and hit enter.

Then, book back into the enternal partition, but this time, don't press anything, and let Chameleon load the OS. If you wanted to make the Leopard install perfect, you'd install a bunch of .kext's, but since you're only using it to install Snow Leopard onto the internal drive, it's not nessecary.

Open up Disk utility, and select the internal hard drive, click the partition tab, and click the drop down menu, and select "1 Partition", underneath the graphical display of the hard drive, click "options" and make sure you're partitioning it to a "GUID" partition. It is possible to install it to an MBR partition, but I didn't do that, so you'll have to google that one on your own.
Next thing, is installing Snow Leopard to the internal drive, but, You're going to need to be able to view hidden files first. The easiest way to do this, is by using a preferencepane called "Secrets" that you can download for free. Just google it.
Pop in your Snow Leopard disk, and navigate to "/System/Installation/Packages/ and double click "OSInstall.mpkg". Install snow leopard to the internal drive, and I highly recommend clicking "customize" and unchecking everything (particularly language translations, and printer support), Many claim that if you don't uncheck them, your install will freeze. Allow it to install. Then, run Netbook Installer. Direct it towards your internal hard drive, (it'll say something about an unsupported device, just ignore that). Only check the first 2 items, "install chameleon bootloader" and "general externsions". Once that has completed, reboot the computer, and unplug the external hard drive. You should see the apple logo, and a countdown bar. just let it load the OS, and you'll see the welcome video.

Install CHUD, then install all the .kext files with kexthelper b7, then move ApplePS2Controller.kext to trash (just do a search for it in spotlight, it'll show up), and then run UpdateExtra (which is already installed on your system.) Then for volume control, drag spark to your applications folder, and run it. Top left corner, there's a gear. Click it, and select "system" from the drop down menu. From there, you can decided what functions you want to assign to whichever key. Good luck.
