[Blindapple] Improving the Mac readme file

Hi everyone.  I just got caught up with the list, and so have really become aware that many mac users are having trouble getting the emulator to work.  I have to take some responsibility for this, as it appears that the readme file is less than adequate.  The goal of the readme file was to keep it as close to the windows version as possible.  But I'm wondering now if some more Mac specific documentation is needed.  
It appears that the things that are tripping most people up are using the finder and using the terminal.  Since these things aren't directly related to the emulator, I'm not sure more detailed instructions on them belong in the readme.  However, what I could do is write up an additional document explaining their use.  Or, I could do some brief audio demos like Jayson did for the Windows version.  
But I would really like to hear from people who can't get the emulator to work, or people who couldn't get to work, but eventually got it resolved.  I definitely want to make the docs as good as they possibly can be.
