No, you cannot use DirectX in anything except x86 Windows environments. Take a look at SDL (libsdl.org), it''s portable to MacOS (as well as Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, BeOS, and so on). Remember that PPC processors are big endian, while IA-32 CPU''s are little endian, you have to be careful of that when loading and saving files.
