Don't think so...as long as you got a proper installation DVD it should work fine. I guess i'm just lucky?

Wow whoever said that it wouldn't work must obviously not know what he's talking about...

Leopard can work on ANY Intel/AMD x86-based PC, it doesn't matter what you have it can work on anything.

Well if your PC supports the minimum requirements of the OS (Tiger or Leopard) then you're good to go.

Pentium 4 class processor or core 2 class processor. AMD Athlon 64+ class or X2 class processors can also work sometimes.
