Running Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.3 in VirtualBox Slckwre

Hello, I've tried been trying my hardest and tried researching as much as I can to get Mac OS X Version 10.6.3 in VirtualBox in slackware. I've found a tutorial but it was for previous versions of Snow Leop and it hasn't seemed to help me get mine to run.

I get to the part where it should start loading the cd (I purchased a copy of Snow Leopard from Amazon) and the closest I've gotten is to what seems to be a bootup and a loading page of some sort. The screen goes gray with a Mac "busy" mouse icon on the screen. It does not advance any farther than this.

I was hoping someone has had experience installing VBox and could share some knowledge.

PS - Running Slack 12.1.0.
PPS - I have the Snow Leopard disc that has "boot camp" on it (idk if this helps)

Many Many thanks for anyone who can help =D

It is mostly illegal even if you bought a license (depending where you live). Apple block such attempts. In North America, cracking is not legal even if you own the cracked software legally. So I don't think it is the right place to discuss how to do it. My answer give you a few clue if you read carefully, but that's all I can say legally.

Not sure it would be illegal if you did purchase the disk. The problem is that you have to have some method of fooling the OS your system is a MAC and that is the touchy part. I tried that software from the Florida company that Apple finally closed down. It was supposed to have worked. Might see how legal the darwin code is.
