How do I convert this application to install & execute from a MAC?

I love this idea because I burn iso's all the time.

I love this idea because I burn iso's all the time & sometimes with the Linux Distro's updating constantly,it then gets really tiring burning cd after cd,not to mention the cd recycle pain. God I love Linux & this is why,because they always come up with the most innovative idea's,I love this idea & I will be using this.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
