I don't have internet access at home, and the internet access does have is on a MAC. And when I download applications, they don't run on my computer. Is there anyway around this?

In theory it shouldn't affect it as long as you don't try to open or modify the files on the Mac.

This might be of interest:

An easy solution is to get internet access at home, down the telephone line and download them there. Slower, but they'll work.
