The desktop i am using is constructed from Intel mainboard DH67CL and the CPU is Intel I5.
Installing Mac osx (10.8.2) is quite straight forward by following instruction in
http://www.tonymacx86.com/61-unibeast-install-os-x-mountain-lion-any-supported-intel-based-pc.html

But for network, i use product from Edimax because their product come with driver for Mac.

This desktop is now running seti@home but it utilise only one CPU although the 'Activity Monitor' showing there are 4 CPUs in the system.

That is because you only have 1 work unit loaded on the machine currently.

We just moved all the servers around so it might be a little bit longer before SETI gets back up and producing work.

That is because you have the Hackintosh.
Be carefully.
