I presume that what you downloaded is an installer; have you tried 
running it?

Second, and a tad off-topic, I'd recommend Linux to you instead of a Mac 
for one reason only: you can install Linux on your present machine 
instead of having to buy a new computer.  Please, people, no holy-wars; 
I'm just making a suggestion that Mr. Simpson is free to ignore. 
However, Mr. Simpson, if you do decide to take my advice, feel free to 
email me off-list so that I can point you toward the Linux distribution 
that's probably best for you, along with the best place to get Linux 
support.  In any event, whatever you decide, I wish you the best of luck.
