I clearly understand your problem my dear friend. Do you know, we cannot install software to MAC Computers if it is not a MAC supported version. The Mac and the IBM models have different binary reading method. So we cannot install IBM supported version of software to Mac Computers and Mac supported versions to IBM Computers.
I am sure you are going to install a copy of office package which is supported for the IBM model (most of the time comes with windows operating system) In order to avoid this problem you have to find a Mac OS supported version of the office package and install it.
