Ok now this was not that simple because i had to use an 10.5 lawlessppc installation and from that to install osx 10.6 to other partition(with the leohazard for intel/amd) and then upgrade to 10.6.8(combo update)

Processor : AMD Athlon X2 7550 Kuma 2.5GHz Socket AM2+
Motherboard : GA-M61PME-S2 (rev. 2.x)
Hard Drive : Hitachi HDP725050GLA SCSI Disk Device
Memory : 2GB DDR2 Kingmax Stick
Graphics : ASUS GeForce 210 1GB DDR3(works oob)
Sound Card : CMI8738 PCI(kinda old but still it works perfectly)

Bootloader : Chimera 1.11.1(full support for my graphics card)
Kernel : 10.6.8 legacy kernel by nawcom
Kexts : AppleNForceATA(most important because without it i cant boot)/Official quadro drivers form Nvidia + CUDA Drivers for mac/CMI8738PCIAudio(for enable the audio of the pci card)

This morning i started itunes as i usually do and after 30 min it froze the display and boom beachball of death.The Solution : Force Restart by pressing the button!! Help me please !!
