    I was just wondering if i could us the disks of my Pc versionof Baldur's Gate 2 and play on my mac? Or if anyone knew if i could trade in PC version for mac version. I heard of someone using an OS X installer on a PC version of quake 3 and i was wondering if i could do the same with this. Any help appreciated.

    Baldur's Gate 2? As in install and run from your PC installer? Not unless the installer has a Mac version included. Windows executables will not run under PPC architecture without some sort of emulation.

    While I have no experience with that particular game, see whether the latest Mac updater works - you might be able to copy the data files in with the new application. This is the same way that the Windows versions of Quake and Wolfenstein can be used on the Mac.
