Gcompris on osx?

I just gave my daughter (4) my old powerbook (g3/400mhz). I have Tiger installed, a new, bigger hd and the max RAM.

I have no idea where to find the OSX version of Gcompris.

I see that it is possible with FINK, but I don't know much about it or how to do it.

Anyone want to walk me through it?

1. Install X11 from Tiger disc
2. Install Developer's Tools ("Xcode") from Tiger disc
3. Download Fink
4. Copy Fink Commander
5. Run Fink Commander to get Gcompris (this will download and compile, if needed, any associated dependencies)
6. Open X11 and run Gcompris from X11's shell

Response by poster: I think I get it. As lon as I don't need to do command line things. Not so good at it.

You guys are awesome. Thanks a million.

Response by poster: Well it's not working. I can't seem to locate the package. I have chosen to see all stable and unstable packages. I do not find it. Does it go by a different name? Can I install it from a separate package that I downloaded?
