i can't install warcraft on my mac ...

First, check if your question has already been asked in the Tutorials section.
If you didn't find a solution, use the search function.
If searching didn't help either, you can make a new topic.

You must use a descriptive title. (Help plz | Help with bot are not good) (How does AT work | Need help with installing SC are good)
Go into much detail when posting. You should post attachments. Like screenshots of the problem, the file you are having problems with, replays of the error. Or you could even make a screencast (video) of your problem and upload it here.

Grammar seems to be a serious problem amongst teenagers, so use a spell checker or you will get no love.
Read your posts twice, before pressing the reply button.
And do not use profanity. Chatspeak (y r u nub) and Leetspeak (1 C4N S33 H4X) are not welcome here either.

Only Battle.net related questions are allowed here!

So you can't open the Installer because "PowerPC applications are no longer supported".
Apple pulled an asshole move with discontinuing Rosetta that used to translate Intel based executables...
Your Installation CD won't work on Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) or higher.
You'll have to download the latest Warcraft 3 digital installer from the Battle.net Games Management page.

Update: bryan reports that it doesn't work.

So I went and googled the error message. I found that:
1: You must have had WC3 installed & patched before you installed Lion in order for it to work.
2: Basically, there will be a future update, but at the moment, new installs on Lion are not working.
