    you should insert the cds into your mac to see if they are hybrid cds.. otherwise if i remember the cd should work on your mac as well as your pc, of course you can't run the pc and mac version at the same time on bnet. you should also go to blizzards starcraft support area since there are some classic installer apps that will help install it because apparently the installer on the cds don't install, and plus the os x patches are there as well.
