    Is it a windows disc or a Mac disc?

    Have you double clicked he disk icon and then the setup application?

    Whether its windows or Mac would be a start, also try a different disc to ensure your superdrive is functioning properly

    well i really got the disc from someone at work that didn't need it anymore and he got in contact with adobe and got me a new key for two computers. i had it installed on my other computer that was a pc.. i was told that it would work on a mac or windows.. maybe i am wrong.

    if it is a windows disc should i just partition a section and install it on the windows side.?? i don't know how that works.. please give me some insight.

    A suggestion would be to make it easy on yourself and contact Adobe regarding swapping the PC disk set for the Mac equivalent disk set. They have exchange programs in place and this would be the simplest way.

    If you mean partitioning to use the software in the current form (PC disks) then keep in mind that it means setting up Windows on your Mac using Boot Camp- and that requires a licensed copy of Windows. Windows XP licensed copies start at $90 for a System Builder copy, so you would need to sink that much in, then set it all up. If you swap for the Mac version through Adobe they would just charge a small mailing/handling fee and you would not need to set up Windows or spend the money for it.
