Hi Tanya,

I use the ones named


You should check that your cluster is running at 64bit, otherwise select
the other similar installer (i386, I think)

I prefer the command-line installer because it gives more flexibility. I
use it like this

./install --prefix=/a/progs/xtal --no-apps

so I can choose where I want it installed and not to install the Mac
apps (normally you don't use them in a cluster since Macs do not share
their Aqua environment other than by "remote desktop" and that for a
single user)

Good luck!
