What had been dL5 now looks like a PC-centric modified Snow Leopard. Somehow I didn't see its System folder at first glance. The iso uses a modified OSX 10.5.4 Install Disc to write out a hacked OSX 10.6.0 plus it contains a 10.6.1 and a 10.6.2-combo updater packages. I'm taking the plunge/risk and testing it now.

Coaster alert, don't bother burning that thing (no longer here, anyway) - wouldn't begin to boot. Tried forcing it to boot with firmware, and even that didn't work - because its entire Extensions folder is MISSING! - what geniuses made and redistributed this! So I hacked its installer and used my MDD to write it. It wasn't the fabled PPC build, sigh. Lots of unofficial cruft, some of it interesting.

DL#5 seems to mount like this:
p1 osx86dvd
p2 Snow_Leopard_10.6.1-10.6.2_SSE2_SSE3_Intel_AMD_by_Hazard

Unfortunately it has no place on this page, and is removed.

dL #5 - what the hell is it? Not an apple disc. Why no description, who uploads such a monstrosity without describing it? Is it 10.6.1 or 10.6.2 how can it be both?

Is the download 5.2GB?
Are you using Apple's built in utility to decompress it?
Many 3rd party programs cannot handle files over 2GB.

@AlexanderMac Sounds like your download may have gotten corrupted. Try redownloading? Alternatively, check if the downloaded file has the same MD5 checksum value as what's here. (d39b8c5d127983f6ad9ba4c3765e2656 for first download.)

Hello, when I try to open the compressed first installation disk, the error "Unexpected end of archive" crashes.
