OS X on Linux (Legally Please)


I would like to install Mac OS X Tiger on my laptop to test my new diabetes record program. I have an install CD I got from my school, but I can't boot the CD and I can't mount it. Any ideas?

Thanks,
-Peter

P.S. I say Legally Please, because I have run across a few sites that talk about the deadmoo image, which I have found out is illegal. If I'm wrong, please tell me. I'm against software patents, but as a developer I don't want my code stolen either.

Looks good. I'll try it and let you know how it works. Any idea of how to install it straight onto the harddrive? I've heard that people have gotten it to work by doing something to the kernel. Yes? No?

Thanks,
-Peter

Technically, what you are talking about (installing directly onto the hard drive) _would_ be illegal, based on the Apple license agreement (which basically restricts it to Apple sanctioned hardware). VMWare should be fine if you can get the OS X images. I'm assuming you have a non-Apple laptop though.
If you do have an Apple laptop, then OS X would already be installed, and then all you need is an article on dual booting Linux + OS X (plenty online). I don't think this is the case though.
And yes, the deadmoo image is illegal, same with the (now pointless) OSx86 project.

ok, well that's annoying. I tried vmware workstation, and it won't power up the Virtual machine unless you have a license, and vmware-player doesn't work. That's also annoying. Have any of you gotten this to work?

Thanks,
-Peter
