Thanks to all those who supplied information on where to find MAPMAKER for the 
Macintosh.  To summarize, you can download any one of a number of MAPMAKER 
versions (PC-DOS, Mac, or SUN) by anonymous FTP from host "genome.wi.mit.edu".  
After connecting to the host, log in as "anonymous" and use your full e-mail 
address as a password.  Don't forget to fill out the license agreement in the 
read.me file before downloading.

Mac users have several options for mapping programs: 

(1) There is a Mac compatible MAPMAKER 1.0.  This was a joint effort between 
the MIT group and DuPont.  This version is distributed by DuPont (see the MIT 
FTP site for more info).  

(2) If you have a Mac with A/UX ($700 Mac/Unix- software) then you can 
download and use MAPMAKER 3 from the above listed FTP site.  

(3) Finally, several people suggested Map Manager as an alternative to 
MAPMAKER for Mac users.  Map Manager is available at the following web site: 
http://mapmgr@mcbio.med.buffalo.edu/.  I haven't tried it yet, but several 
people seemed to like it

Thanks again for all of the speedy replies.
