As iBookG4user said, I doubt it would run on that hardware- Oblivion has some seriously steep hardware requirements.

Woah, hold on there mates. :)

Oblivion will indeed run on a GMA950. I play it on my macbook all the time. Oldblivion (the mod posted above) does help a LOT, I wouldn't recommend playing without it. :D

As for the initial OP's question to the installation issue, I have no idea. Have you tried installing just Oblivion, no expansion, and seeing if that works?

I have tried EVERYthing and i can't get it to run, do i need specific versions, and does it matter that i have a DVD instead of CDs?

Ok i've got a dilemma as well, i've got oblivion for mac and it says it will run on mac 10.5 leopard, which ive got. i know that oblivion will run at 280 odd mb of ram, my ibook g4 has 512 mb of ram so it should just be playable but im wondering: if i have a 1.33 ghz powerpc processor and use oldblivion will it work? :confused:

by the way i haven't tried oblivion out yet and i haven't got oldblivion cause i can't get it to work so is my computer just too ancient for this kind of thing?

^^yes, you need an Intel Mac, plus there is no Oblivion for Mac, just PC version which you need an Intel Mac + Bootcamp for, or a pirate ciderized version which also needs Intel.
