The easiest way for Mac OS X is to wrap a wine client around it, like Cegeda does in CoX with Cider.

While Cegeda does not give back code to WINE, it is still a vastly more mature interface than Crossover, and with EQ2, I found wine = winehack to be easier and better than the paid product (for EQ2 at least)
