Starcraft install help on iBook

    I have just recently purchased a MacInntosh iBook. Being a casual
    computer gamer, I tried installing the classic game Starcraft onto my
    new machine, knowing that the game is programmed to work with Apple.
    However, once putting the disk into my iBook, I must pull up the
    Finder and click on the "Install Starcraft" icon, only to have a
    message informing me "Cannot open Starcraft Installer Archive, you
    must install Starcraft from the disk." I do not understand at all why
    I receive this message, given the fact that I did have the CD on the
    drive and I did not click the "Starcraft Installer Archive" icon. Any
    information on why I am getting this message or any help as to how I
    can successfully install the Starcraft game would be great. Thanks.

    Seeing as how I've only really seen macs in action, and never actually
    owned/used one, the only advice I can offer is check to see what OS that
    StarCraft requres. I know that macs now have OS9 and OSX in sort of a
    competition between themselves, so yeah, check to see if you need to be
    in 9 or X.

    Starcraft for Mac OS X requires version 10.1 or later, So check your
    OS version first.

    Also, if it is an older CD, it may be a PC only. I know Blizzard's
    newer CD's contain both, but I think older CD's were for individual
