As a convenience for developers who have used older computers with developer releases, or who need to demonstrate their software using PowerBooks, Apple has provided a mechanism for installing Mac OS X Server on certain unsupported configurations.

You should not use Mac OS X Server installed on an unsupported configuration in a production server environment.

Apple does not provide assistance with any difficulties you encounter if you attempt to operate Mac OS X Server on an unsupported configuration.
