Ahem MAC (Media Access Control address) or Mac (abbreviation of Macintosh),
well if others can rant about top posting I can rant about capitalisation.

I'm confused about what you're trying to do, there is no such thing as a Mac
format file, there are Mac format CDs (ie hfs not ISO96...whatever format)
but if you have a Mac you can read the CD and copy the files off onto
anywhere you like.

Is the issue reading the CD or converting the files from Quark (or something
else?) to something that Discuss can read, or getting the files from a Mac
to a XP?

As a starter a quick google reveals a couple of apps for reading Mac
formatted CDs in windows (I've never used either)
