I just checked the web site . They
support various Windows OSes, and Real Soon Now Linux, but not any Mac
OS. So non-Windows users, don't waste your time at this time.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: It is too bad that other OSes are not
available now, but there are still plenty of Windows users, and I
hope everyone who can do so will get involved in this effort to
fight AIDS. PAT]
