The readme is just a blank file for now. I need to get around to updating it
to a proper readme - the one from Darwine is out of date, and the original
one i created wasn't exactly useful (and is out of date now). I'll try and
have it ready for the next update though.

You're the second person to tell me that there's a problem with
WineHelper.app.. I'll poke PackageMaker a lot and make sure it works before
the next release (tomorrow? if that's wine's timeline).

I thought there was a Mac version of TA? And i cant find a copy online (and
I've long since lost my physical copy) to try out.

This is probably a libhal related thing, but I also can't get DVD Decrypter

Probably related to libhal. I thought that there was some code (under
dlls/ntdll/somethingoranother.c) that added support for cd/dvd drives on one
level or another on macs..

See http://wiki.winehq.org/MacOSX/QuartzDriver for (as far as i know) the
latest info. The first paragraph there sums it up fairly well.  The rest of
the page describes how to use Quartzdrv if you want.  I haven't really had
much luck with Quartzdrv for general usage though.
