After many years of work with Max/MSP on MacOS 9/X I want to try Pd out.

So I am going to install it on TiBook computer running MacOS X 10.2.6.

I have several questions about Pd:

1) I am looking for advice about which installer to choose (especially not 
to have trouble with all this tcl/tk stuff).
2) Is there a document explaining the main practical differences between Pd 
and Max/MSP?
3) It seems that several externals need to be compiled by the user himself. 
Is there a good tutorial for beginners in compilers installation and use 

Thank you in advance.

Best regards,

Roald Baudoux
