You can't install PC software on a MAC. You have to purchase MAC versions of the software.

There are some pc emulators on the market that will run on the Mac. Below is a small extract from the connectix site. Don't expect miracles though, this is more of a "workaround" solution. If your main goal is to run PC software, sell the Mac, and buy a PC.

Put a PC in your Mac!

Now it's easier than ever to give your Mac the PC compatibility you need. Virtual PC for Mac, Version 4 lets you put a fast, powerful PC inside your G3 or G4 Mac, enabling you to run PC applications, access PC networks, share files with PC-based colleagues, and use PC-only Internet services and applications. Choose from a range of pre-installed pre-configured OS's; Windows® 98, Me, 2000, or PC DOS.
