Uh.... The touchpad works. You can't tap to click because the Mac OS doesn't recognize it. Even on the iBooks and PowerBooks. You have to actually click.

1.) Format iPod as NTFS
2.) Copy tiger-x86-flat.img to iPod.
3.) Boot from Gentoo LiveCD
4.) Mount iPod
5.) dd if=/ipod/tiger-x86-flat.img of=/dev/sda
6.) Reboot with WinXP CD
7.) Skip XP blah, create partition (E
8.) Exit out of install after creating partition
9.) Reboot with WinXP CD
10.) E: becomes C:
11.) Install Windows to C:
12.) Use Logical Disk Manager to partition
13.) Reboot to Gentoo LiveCD
14.) Use fdisk to change partition types as stated above
15.) Stage 1/3 Gentoo Install
16.) Go to sleep while Gentoo compiles
17.) Install Grub
18.) Grub boot settings for OSx86 is the same as Windows
19.) Transmit Maxxus patch through Rendevouz protocol (Bonjour under iChat)
20.) Apply Maxxus patch (0.4) and reboot.
Quiet Boot = Yes (No need for the Darwin bootloader to prompt as I'm using GRUB)
Graphics Mode = 1280x1024x60
Most of the stuff is running smoothly now.
No high resolution: Maxes out at 1280x1024.
No CoreGraphics, QuartzExtreme.
Sync crashes. (Syncing with my Razr over bluetooth)
Automount of NTFS partitions.
No touchpad drivers and settings.
Extra mouse buttons don't work (mouse4-mouse5, damn you Apple and your 1-button methology). Middle click works but not for scrolling.
USB Mouse - Renamed AppleFPMemDriver. Scroll wheel works.
Command Key (Ctrl vs. Alt) - System Preferences - Keyboard & Mouse - Modifier Keys. Switch Command and Control keys.
Bluetooth stuff no longer freezes after the USB fix (See USB Mouse)
Address Book still freezes - Disappeared after a reboot for USB fix.
Internet Connection Sharing over Bluetooth.
If Bluetooth is running (LED is on) OSx86 has problems rebooting, it just hangs at the grey screen.
If it's off, everything is fine.

Also to be safe I am sure to save my important documents, but would I run into any serious problems just using a new partition?

Do I burn to a disk and install in OSX or what? OSX86Project deleated the thread with the instructions.
