Confused on cross-platform issues. - Macromedia Director Basics

Sorry, but I'm still a bit confused..... I understand that you can produce cross-platform versions from either a Mac or a PC - that's great news. But...if I produce a projector on a PC, and burn the CD in the usual way (of course, ensuring that the settings for both platforms are checked in the options dialog box), will that CD automatically run on a Mac? At the moment, I produce the cross-platform version on a PC, and then use TOAST to burn the CD, as this seems to be the only reliable way to do it. So...no more toast?? ...

    So...no more toast?? Only one burn??? Is that right?

    You understand that one must create a separate Mac projector with
    Director for Mac, and these days to run native in both Mac OS-9 and
    OS-10 you have to create 2 different Mac projectors.

    There are one or two special PC programs that can create Mac/Windows
    Hybred CDs, but since the data form part of Mac files doesn's get
    handled by PC file system, one usually creates CDs on Macs with Toast.

    If you use the 'stub' projector scheme and use quictime videos, you can
    pretty much develope the whole project on one playform and just throw in
    a generic projector for the other platform.
