Hi all,
I have a laptop which is without OS. So I am planning to install "MAC OS X Leopard".

My laptop configuration is:
Intel Core 2 Duo 2GHz
2GB DDR2 RAM
120 GB HDD
Shared video memory

I am working on different windows versions from past 10 years. I am very much comfortable with windows. I know where to go for a specific problem in windows. Now I have some questions in my mind before installing MAC OS X:
1.Will my laptop configuration support MAC OS X Leopard?
2.Do I need to take care of some things before installing?
3.Will my normal PC keyboard and mouse work on MAC? If Yes, then how?
4.What all support software should I install to work?
5.How will my office documents will work in MAC?
6.How can I play windows based games on MAC?
QUOTE Thanks

Some of the other guys might be able to confirm this but I thought it was against the EULA to install OS X on a non apple supplied platform, as for the other bits I dont know.

Correct, plus the fact that it won't work anyway (Well not without a lot of illegal fiddling about).

1.Will my laptop configuration support MAC OS X Leopard?
If it's a Mac it will, if not then no.

2.Do I need to take care of some things before installing?
Possibly buying a Mac, see above.

3.Will my normal PC keyboard and mouse work on MAC? If Yes, then how?
Yes, plug them in.

4.What all support software should I install to work?
Dunno

5.How will my office documents will work in MAC?
Like they do on a PC - install Office.

6.How can I play windows based games on MAC?
Install Windows VIA BootCamp or buy Mac versions.
QUOTE Thanks
