Hi Rich,

Another option that I have had success with recently is installing Darwine
to run Windows applications on my Mac.  Darwine appears to be a variant of
Wine, and I think there is a commercial version also (but I can't remember
its name). 

Using Darwine I have installed WinBUGS and EpiData and they both seem to be
working well. (However, at least one other application has not worked, so it
may not be sufficient to run whatever multi-level sample size program you
have in mind.)

The link that I found most helpful is below:

But I also found this link useful too:
