Well it's sure been awhile...

It's been like almost a year since I've been somewhat active.

Well I'm looking for a challenge and I'm thinking a retail Snow Leopard install is what I need.

If I go and buy 1GB of SDRAM(Which is what kept me from installing perfectly last year...) What version of Snow Leopard should I use?(Like a retail 10.6.0 or 10.6.4 or what, Like I said.. It's been A LONG TIME haha)

Then I want to burn the ISO to my 8GB flash drive, install a bootloader, get the correct kexts for my hardware and install... Right?

Also wheres a good website for getting Snow Leopard ready kexts?

Computer: Gateway 838GM | 9.5.0 Vodoo Kernel |2.0 RC4 Chameleon Bootloader | Processor:Intel Pentium 4 630 / 3 GHz | RAM: 512MB | OS: Windows 7 32BIT, OSx86 iPC 10.5.6 | Mainboard Chipset: Intel 915G Express | Graphics Card:Integrated Intel GMA 900 | Video Memory: Dynamic Video Memory Technology 3.0 | Audio:ALC 860 |Card Reader:8 in 1 Integrated| Hard Drives:1x 200GB SATA(Win 7), 1x 320GB SATA(OS X) Both Internal

Welcome back, retail is usually best with a Chameleon boot CD or iBoot.
You'll need to add some kexts and a kernel to support your hardware, however you could go for some distros :P

There are 10.6.0 and 10.6.3 Retail DVD avaible.

I would also recommend you to make a Back-Up of the AppleIntelIntegratedFramebuffer.kext you have been using on Leopard...
