    Ive got a DVD-ROM that I need to run on my Macbook for school. The DVD-ROM said it requires a PC based (Windows) OS to run it. I can watch the DVD part of it through the dvd player, but I can look at the information and quiz sections. I have CrossOver but I cant get it to work. Any solution other than running Windows?

    Depends of if the DVD is just DVD-Video or if it contains an Application. If the former, then you should just be able to use DVD Player to view it, if the Latter, you must use Windows.

    What IS CrossOver?

    You actually have run Windows in Parallels, Fusion, or BootCamp to get it to work.
