Scott - You could bridge the gap by using VirtualPC until an installer is
constructed. That has the added benefit that you can also run windows
xp or 2000 pro and PC linux (redhat, debian) simultaneously with OSX. It
makes for a very flexible system, you can run almost anything, and furthermore
the actions on the PC can be controlled by applescript on the mac side.  On a
fast mac with lots of memory, speed is adequate for most purposes, and
the more you run it the faster it gets (instruction cache). I do these
things my tibook and it works fine. A dual processor G5 should really work
