I tried it back with OSX, and it worked fine but I couldn't get my NIC to work so I gave up. I had it installed on an external HD and brought it around to my computer lab and showed my professors. It was pretty cool, but useless beyond the sense of being a novelty item.
No, it is illegal. The software agreement clearly states that Mac OS 10 is to be run only on Apple approved systems.

It can not totally be illegal because they see a X86 version of the program to developers who want to run mac on there windows machine for testing pourpouses. And it is cool, nice job.

(it is not illegal until you get caught)

True, but still why would you want to risk it. The repercussions aren't worth the risk in the end. Anyway, I think that using linux is a great alternative to OS X if you are looking for a different OS to run, and want to learn.
