    Are you running Bootcamp with Windows or Parallels or something along those lines? If program files are coming up you are trying to install the Windows version it sounds like.

    I've looked in all the program files and tried to load some of the set ups but i'm not getting any luck with it.

    Is there some kind of program or way around it so i can install it?

    It's more complicated than that. If Darwine supported all of that stuff (at least in Tiger, :apple:'s X11 was broken or something) you might at a reduced framerate. I don't know about Leopard.

    @ollie: If you haven't heard of Wine or Darwine, they are pains in the neck that take forever to setup and not work. Unless you know exactly what you are doing, I'd count them out as an option.
