    My son is almost 3 yrs old and they have a computer class already in school. they just play around with Elmo and Jumpstart games.

    I have an Elmo's Preschool for PC and tried to run it on my Mac Mini under Crossover. When I inserted the CD, guess what? It has a Mac installer as well! The only problem is that it's for Mac OS 7.5 (or something like that). The installer icon has a circle-with-slash on top of it (like the no u-turn sign). Can i still make this work under OS X?

    You can check out Apple's software downloads site. You might find a few freeware or shareware gems in there.
