    I'm trying to download a game (Spore) to my macbook. But the installer wont start up. At the top of the screen it says I have zero KB available. What does this mean? I don't have any other games on my computer so I can't imagine it doesn't have any memory left...

    Is your startup disk full (no disk space 0-GB available?), or quite possibly you are low on memory.

    You can check on the disk by selecting Get Info on the contextual menu on your hard disk. Should show you available disk space.

    For actual memory (which I doubt is the problem) you can do the following.
    In your application's folder you can find a folder titled Utilities. That folder contains an application titled [/b]Activity Monitor[/b] that should show you how much available memory you have left.

    What about dragging the Installer from the Disk Image to your Desktop or somewhere else on your hard drive?

    Does that change anything?

    I mean, it's really hard to have no hard drive space left, the system would be acting up like crazy and should give you a warning (I don't remember if it does, as I only once ran into this problem three years ago on a 27GB drive).
