You can not install MAC OS onto a PC as you would like Windows, due to the architecture of PC, (x86).

But there is a growing collection of good MAC OS emulators to run MAC OS X on a PC with XP. I only really know of one. PearPC, which is a PowerPC Emulator that can on most PowerPC OS's like MAC.

Search Google for PearPC

Hope This was helpful.
