    Yes, I installed Preware last night using my Mac Mini. Follow this guide: Application:Preware - WebOS Internals

    It's a Java app so you would follow the same steps if you were using Windows.

    the one that i noticed on a PPC Mac is that the latest Java 1.6 is for intel macs so i couldn't install it on my PPC. I could be wrong but if anyone has a PPC and was able to install WebOS Quick Install, let me know.
    I had to use a windows based PC.

    Did you ever get Preware successfully installed via WebOS Quick Install from your Mac? I'm asking because, as a fellow Mac owner/user, I experienced a number of headaches along the way - since there are several quirks that Mac owners must deal with - which most of the posts on PreCentral don't mention or explain.

    So - if it's still a problem for you - let me know or post again - and I'll pass on what I found out.

    OS X 10.5.8 here running on Macbook Air.

    Installed webOSDoctor.jar and webOSQuickInstall.jar with no problems. Then I used webOSQuickInstall to install PreWare. Also no problems.
