used to have an older kallyway boot disk but is this one different?

adamkun, the disc that I have allows OS X to boot cleanly with an unmodified installation of the OS. That's mostly useful when it comes to updates - nothing is going to get broken if it hasn't been modified. As one InsanelyMac member said, let modified distributions die like the dinosaurs they are.
And don't give your money to EFi-X. It's jsut a glorified USB flash drive. You could make your own flash drive if that's what you wanted.

I'll probably get the box folding@home, and I don't recall seeing any Mac GPU software for that, so it would have to use... what? I'm unaware of any Wine type thing for Mac, but then I'm unaware of most things about Macs.
One thing your reply and other things I've seen make me wonder about is Snow Leopard, which is a revision before the Lion version, and why I would want to or have to use that. Care to explain? Did Apple wipe out some compatibilities in their latest update that makes generic mobos less likely to work?
One plan for the system is to do some development on it if necessary. If I could do that from my Windows box I'd be happier, but everything I've seen about that looks underwhelming so far.
