I installed OSX Darwin natively on my PC. I Formatted the drive and just installed it. My PC is an Athlon 64 3200+ processor a Biostar MB with Nforce ultra chipset ATI Radeon 1300 pro vidcard. The machine ran OSX like a champ and it is smoking fast. My only problem is the network! I cannot get it to recognize any ethernet adapter, usb or otherwise. Everything else works fine! Any idea how to get it to connect to a network? I am a MAC dummy,
but running it on my pc shows me what windows lacks! the speed was incredible.

    I originally had the same problem with the network, but found another tutorial that explained how to get the network working. Here's a link:

    The upshot is you have to install a program in Windows that creates another ethernet adapter which Mac OS uses.

    Unfortunately you'll have to use a different configuration file to boot into Mac OS. PearPC came with a config file called "ppc.example" (openable in wordpad, it's screwy-looking in notepad). The os-emulation site tells you which changes to make in order to make the internet work in Mac OS.

    Hope this helps.
