    How do I kn ow if a program will run on my Mac? I see lots of utilities and some of them don't say pc only. Is there a way to tell what programs will work on both machines? I know about major programs I'm talking about Free stuff.

    Thanks

    Well if the file is an .exe it won't run on your mac. If it's an .hqx or a .bin or a .dmg it will.

    On the CD or whatever you want to install, there is always a label that says the system requirements... If it says stuff like P4, it indicates that it is for PC. If no Mac compatibility is seen then it is a stupid CD not worth buying...JK... But it'll say...Either the box that the CD came in or it will say directly on the CD, or in the manual... However if it is not Mac compatible it will also not work on the Mac...
