Mac OS X is intended for Apple hardware only, so out of the box it won't. However in saying that there are websites that are making grounds making it work on non apple platforms.

To get it to work on AMD processors you either need to download a pirated (not supported by us in any shape or form)version patch it, or get a real version and patch it.
Chances are that a lot of the drivers are missing for other devices too.

if it does don't expect support from Apple. the OS is designed heavily around the Apple hardware it is supposed to run on.

Mac OS X is only licenced for use on Apple hardware, but there is a Mac OS of sorts available. The underlying unix technology is available as an open source project called Darwin. This is probably a lower level solution than you are looking for, but here are some links:

You can get it running on your AMD box, but there are always a few driver problems (usually network, audio and video)

Please do not do this.

It's illegal and you will have all sorts of problems with it.

If you wan't OS X (and I highly recomend it) buy an apple, the're really not that expensive these days.

Probably as legal as downloading Vista, using a keygen and applying a WPA crack to it.

You would most likely be in breech of the software license too.
