The cd's which work on different p[latforms have the same material written on the disk in the different formats. a cd will hold 600+ MB. Most cd's do not use any where near that much space so they just put a win version and a mac version on the same disk.

You can create a folder on the desktop in Windows and drop as many icons as you want into it thus sorting your icons. I have one for games, one for often opened programs, and one for the web on my desktop..

i'm sorry, but you still havent answered HOW to make a different output on different OS's, and the second answere doesnt make sense...  I'm talking about on the mac you can take like 10 icons, bunch them all up so it looks like 1 big icon, and it'll make a image out of the icons.  Is that possible on windows?

If you want a different answer to 1, please tell me what you mean by "cd output".
For 20 the short answer is "no". However you could use the browser and make a web type image map. this procedure will work best with win 97.

ok well thats my fault(and being impatient and clicking submit three times is yours!), but by cd output i mean how do you make the cd so on the mac it lists files/folders a, b, and c only, and windows it lists files/folders d, e, and f only, etc.

This CDs which have 2 different contents depending on the OS are called hybrid CDs. There are written 2 sessions on the CD which a flag for which OS they are used. But there are programs for the MAC which are able to read both sessions.
