It is contrary to Apple's EULA to run an Apple OS on non-Apple hardware.

Apple considers it illegal to install Mac OS on hardware that was not built by them. The NEC Ready 330T was not.

No one cares what Apple thinks! and besides you are incorrect. It is against their eula to install OS-X on a "retail" sold PC, not buy a retail copy of the OS and install it.

Buy a retail copy of x86 OS-X off of eBay, and do a google search for "os-x on pc hardware" since macs are nothing but PC's with a fancy case now-a-days. Below is a sample link.

EDIT: research the specs first, I have no idea what the specs for a NEC 330T are and OS-X for x86 has certain hardware requirements.

PowerMac 9600(1 ghz G4)
512mb RAM
50gb SCSI
ATi 9200 PCI

I was going to use OS- 8.1. since it has only 98 RAM max and 3gb Hard Drive. W/ CD-ROM drive.

What???

Understand this: Mac OS 1 - 9.22 was developed in-house and was ONLY available for 68K(1 - 8.1), and PPC(7.1.2 - 9.22) macs. You can NOT use any 68K or PPC software on an x86 based machine, ie, a PC. All modern day macintoshes use x86 hardware and run a version of UNIX with a GUI layer on top, this chopped up version of UNIX is called OS-X. This is why "Macintosh" is no longer a Macintosh. Get it?

If you are saying that your laptop only has 96mb's of RAM and a 3gb HD, you are pretty much stuck with Windows 98, and installing XP on a 3gb HD with less than 128mb's of RAM will be challenging to say the least.

You have a "PC", not a "Mac"

But they system Requirements for MAC OS 8.1
1. Your computer must have a 68040 or PowerPC processor.

2. You must have 12 MB of real RAM (and virtual memory up to 20 MB if you have less than 20 MB real RAM).

3. If you have the Mac OS 8.1 CD, you must have approximately 195 MB of hard disk space to update.

Read this:

Then this...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PowerPC

Then this...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X86

and after you read all three, you will under stand what 68k, PPC, and x86 means.
