    .dmg are Mac only image files, as you thought. What you'll need to do is as described in <a href="http://forums.macrumors.com/archive/topic/32037-1.html" target="_blank">this</a> thread (on a Mac, not a PC):

    1-convert your .dmg file to a CD/DVD master using Disk Copy (apple+K and choose a dmg file then choose master DVD/CD as format)

    2-once conversion is over, you must change the extesion of the output file to .iso (ex : imagename.cdr.dmg => imagename.iso)

    Give that a shot.

    With Mac OS X based on Unix, it's close enough. :)

    I like Macs. Not a lot of PC users do, but I don't mind them. I don't fully understand them yet, but I'm working on it. :D

    imo it is simply unfair. you are expecting Linux to get .exe's working and that too without emulation??? why don't you expect rpm's to install or sources to compile on windows for that matter? i don't see anything like that happening.
    you'll pay $$ for Windows without any LInux compatibility but you want Linux to change its file system and accomodate exe's? i m not ranting but i could not stop myself. sorry for going off topic here : peace2:

    Im with Beefy on this one.
    I dont mind Macs at all. They are totally different, and I dont mind them, as long as I can figure out how to use them. :thumb:

    Dont get me wrong...I know im talkin some sort of nonsense about that topic...i know its asking for too much...but that is what would port me over easily...i could still port without that much of a problem but i just want linux to become very user friendly so they can get a larger user base and compete with microsoft...because im tired of ms charging 399 for a full version...(and yes i know you can get an oem for like 130 which is still kick ass if u think about it)... and all the activation crap and the bloated ness and all that....so yeah...ima stop whatever im doing now...lol...but yes asklepios...u are right and dont be sorry...its all gravy...take care man...peace
