I have a copy of Q4 I bought around release and recently bought a MacBook Pro I would like to play it on. Is there a way i can install Q4 on my Mac with my PC DVD version? Something similar to copying over the pak0 file in Q3? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Don't think so.

Doom 3 and later, I think, have been done by Aspyr. I doubt even the windows version CD key would work with the Aspyr binary.

The cd key will work fine.
You'll be able to install Q4 patches (ie http://www.macgamefiles.com/detail.php?item=19123 ) without having the game installed. When you're done, just copy pak001.pk4 up to and including pak011.pk4 from the pc DVD to /Applications/Quake4/q4base.
However - Quake4.app, in all versions, requires the mac dvd to be in the drive.
