Hi John,

This is probably not the best way to install it, as the install script 
requires you to answer some questions. I would recommend installing it 
via the command line:

cd /path/to/Mac4Lin_Install_v1.0  [on my computer that was 
~/Downloads/Mac4Lin_Install_v1.0]

then to run the installer type:

./Mac4Lin_Install_v1.0.sh

and the installer will run and ask you some yes/no questions.

You can uninstall by typing:

./Mac4Lin_Uninstall_v1.0.sh

Tom
