1) Doesn't this go in "Other Computers"?
2) Sell your PC. Buy a real Mac. Feel happy. Go out and buy a few more. Feel even happier (and skint)

oops

i didnt really know what section to put this in, and i do things on both computers, i really cant get rid of the pc. im saving for a mac mini or a G4 desktop. im not sure what i want. but i am a student and dont work enough to dish out $500 or so for a brand new mac. if i had the money id say screw it and go with an Imac G5. dont get me wrong i love macs, i used them before pc's. i just have alot of uses for both.

On thier website they have detailed documents on getting it running. But a few points that may help:

It's not click and run, you need to start the application while pointing it at a config file.

You need to read the docs and edit the config files.

You need to image your X cd's to hard disk as the Windows port doesn't support physical cd-roms.

I consider software hacks a perfect place for this thread. It's about software, and you are going to have to hack the crap out of it to make it work.
