Is Snow Leopard compatible with AMD processors?

I was thinking about buying snow leopard OS for my computer. However i went to Best Buy and asked the Geek Squad people and they said that it will only work with Intel. I didn't buy it. I went to Google and did some research and i found some places that say it is and some that say that it isn't.

I have an AMD phenom 2 1090 T processor.

Is there a way to make this work??

Thanks for any help

Snow Leopard is not technically "compatible" with anything other than Apple Hardware. Apple's EULA also forbids you from installing any Mac OS X version (other than Mac OS X server) on anything other than Apple hardware.

That being said, some people have been able to run Snow Leopard on AMD chips by building a special kernel that runs on the AMD systems.

They are not trying to sell software. Apple is a hardware manufacturer.
