My suggestion would be to:

  - put in the TeXLive inst CD
  - open the MACOSX folder at the root of the disk
  - read the README
  - open up / mount the II2.dmg
  - copy the i-Installer app to a convenient location on your HD (I find 
it important enough to keep in the Applications:Utilities folder
  - run i-Installer, and install the appropriate packages (there was a 
list posted here a while back, or Gerben should have it on his 
i-Installer.app web pages)
  - open up / mount the TeXshop .dmg and follow the instructions to 
install that.

Then, if desired, visit http://scripts.sil.org/xetex and install 
Jonathan Kew's XeTeX, and use the links page there to get Will 
Robertson's FontSpec and you'll have a very nice TeX setup optimized 
for Mac OS X.
