Also, do I need to copy all my files on an external hard drive or is it safe enough so I don't need to do this operation?
If you know what you're doing you can just shrink your partition and go for it.
But to be on the safe side of things I suggest you make the image copy Mentioned above.
So if I understand, the Image copy will copy all my songs, programs and everything else that is on my hard drive as well as Win 7 ?

I have another problem. When I open my computer, I press on ESC to go in the boot options, I choose to boot OS X with the CD/DVD drive, but it keeps booting Windows instead. what am I doing wrong?

Thank you.

Yes It will make a copy of your entire drive.

In my experience it's a matter of try, fail, try again, fail and try again...
Search the net, read about what the different iso's contain and just try.

I have AMD 3000+ 1,8Ghz Processor
nVidia 7600GS
AsRock Mainboard
etc. etc.

The only version I found that will boot on my hardware was the Kalyway OSX 10.5.2
And I've tried 10.5.5, 10.5.6, 10.5.8, 10.6 etc. etc. From many different providers.

If you do find one that boots on your system, stick with it.

You should try a later version of Kalyway, that one is quite old.
