Default Installing BB apps on Pearl using OSX

Please Login to Remove!

Okay, newbie BB Pearl / long time Mac user question:

How do I install apps on my Pearl from my G4 Mac (Panther)?

For example, on this page

Chess Puzzles for RIM

There is a Chess puzzle game.

There are instructions for the Windows user, but for Mac?

Can I unzip a file, transfer to the BB, and install from there?

Or do I need something like Virtual PC?

You'll need to use PocketMac for Blackberry.
PocketMac For BlackBerry | Call Toll Free 1-866-POCK-MAC

You may also need to upgrade your OS to 10.4.x (Tiger). I don't know that PocketMac is fully (if at all) supported on Panther.
