Very informative, thanks!  It seems that there are a number of add-ons that are required:
Protégé-OWL, which requires Graphviz; and on top of all that, Drupal 7!  Any tips along those lines would be great.  I am also looking for YouTube items that may walk me through this whole mess, since I do not have a Mac any more to rehearse on.  Your prompt responses are appreciated, as I have to attempt this tomorrow afternoon.  Thanks, Harold

PS:  I am downloading .dmg and .zip files, they will be automagically recognised on the Mac, yes?  And burning them to DVD using PowerIso, they will be readable on the target Mac, I am praying!.
Yes. They will be recognized automatically by the Mac.
