Help Installing Quake 3 Arena

I posted this elsewhere, but got no help, so I'm trying here.



So I've plowed through the forums here and elsewhere, and I can't seem to make it work. I have Q3A installed in classic. It plays in classic (with some lag and other weirdness). I'd like to have it installed in OS X.



Here's what I've done:



1) installed Q3A in classic.

2) Moved the Q3 folder to /Applications

3) Downloaded the latest patch (1.3.2?)

4) Moved the Quake3.app file to the Q3 folder

5) Double-clicked it and watched as it asks me again and again to "select retail installation"

6) Roamed around on the web and learned that I needed to move the pak0.pk3 file from the CD to the Quake folder

7) Double-clicked the Quake3.app file and watched as it asks me again and again to "select retail installation"

8) Roamed around on the web and learned that I needed to delete the quake preferences file. Did that.

9) Double-clicked the Quake3.app file and watched as it asks me again and again to "select retail installation"





So I'm stumped. Can someone walk me through how to get the OSX install of Q3A working?
