Dear Thomas,

We are currently using the Boulder, CO group's IMOD package very 
successfully on Macintosh G5's running  OS10.3 (Panther), as well as 
Bernard Heymann's Bsoft package.  I have run David Agard & John 
Sedat's PRIISM package on OS 10.2.8, but have yet to try it on the 
latest version.  The software developers themselves are your best 
resource.  The only problems I ever had with running Unix-based 
software on Mac OS X had to do with graphical interface libraries, 
and that was with older versions of the OS.  I'm not a programmer, so 
I apologize for not being more specific than that.  Good luck!
