Wouldn't it be easier to start a new thread with your experiences and progress? I started searching for your chipset support on Google and ended up on posts from you in other threads on this forum

I think if you try to keep this centralized in one thread, including all your successes it's easier for others to see what you solved already and what not, plus it will provide a sort of knowledge base specified to your hardware for new newbies (like ourselves).

Anyway, I think you should try to install using iPC distro with PPF 3 included.
Only check "Voodoo kernel", the "seatbelt patch" and your chipset kext. (Chameleon bootloader doesn't need to be checked, it's installed by default)
After install the instant reboot will probably give you a kernel panic but in my experience the first reset won't KP.

If you get this running all other hardware support can be next.

Good luck.
